**We are not currently accepting new interns**

We are excited about your interest in our research!  We are a grant funded lab and unable to accept volunteers. Instead our interns must receive course credit from their home university for their work with us. Our internship is open to both undergraduate and graduate students at any university in the Nashville area. Depending on your time commitment you will receive 1-3 credits each semester you work with us.  We do give preference to those students who commit to working with us for at least 2 semesters (and who can work 10+ hours/week).

We offer positions for students to work closely with us on our research projects.  Interns in this program will participate in research activities including: data collection, behavioral coding, and observation.  Additionally, interns will assist our therapists with videoing sessions and childcare to provide opportunities to work directly with children.  You would be assigned to one of our project coordinators or one of our PhD students who will train and supervise you during your time here.

Internship Requirements:

  • Must be enrolled in a university course that provides academic credit for the internship experience. This can be an undergraduate or graduate level course.
  • Must be able to pass a background screen & fingerprinting.
  • Must be able to provide proof of current personal health insurance.
  • Must be able to commute to our office location.

Our office is open Monday-Friday (8a-5p), and we will set your work schedule around your class schedule.  We do ask that you work the same days/hours weekly. 

Please contact Madeline Hinson at with any questions.
