Description
This internship takes place in the gymnasium at M.A. Lynch Elementary School (1314 SW Kalama Ave. Redmond, OR 97756) Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 2:40 pm-3:20 pm. If you would like to extend this internship from 40 minutes to 60 minutes, you are more than welcome to stay until 3:40 pm to assist in cleaning up and preparing the special education classroom for the following day.
 
Specially Designed Physical Education (SDPE) is an alternative physical education class that is modified to meet the individual needs of youth with disabilities. The majority of the students participating in SDPE at Lynch Elementary have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and if you are not familiar with ASD, it is highly advised that you research this specific disability before applying for this internship. Although experience is preferred, candidates that do not have experience interacting/working with people on the spectrum are welcome to apply.
 
During this internship, you will be trained by a certified Adapted Physical Education specialist and an Integrated Living Skills teacher. Throughout the 2022-23 school year the intern will work alongside school instructional aides and learn how to facilitate gross motor activities for youth with disabilities. Interns that feel confident in their ability to lead the PE class will have the opportunity to do so but if you are more comfortable simply assisting, that is totally fine and greatly appreciated.
 
Educational Aspect
This internship is a fantastic opportunity for individuals interested in pursuing a teaching career in either Physical Education, Special Education, or a career supporting individuals on the autism spectrum. The skills acquired through this internship will also positively transfer into a variety of jobs that support youth programming (after-school programs, summer camps, youth recreation programs, etc.).
