  1. 1. Psychology 3561: Autism Pre-Practicum Meeting Times: Croyden Visits: TBA Seminar: TBD Office Hours: By Appointment Julie Sanchez Pre-Practicum Senior System Manager Email: TBA Pre-Practicum Junior System Manager Email: Taylor Babcock Pre-Practicum Undergraduate Assistant Email: Course description: The pre-practicum training course is a supplement to the practicum PSY 357 that provides the opportunity to obtain relevant information about the practicum, to observe current practicum students, and to work with children in the ECDD classroom at Croyden Avenue School. Absences: Because the seminar only runs for seven weeks, it is very important that each student attend all meetings. You may have 1 excused absence without lowering your grade. Any absence that I am not notified about either in advance or shortly after class will result in loss of ½ a letter grade. So, any unexcused absence results in your grade lowered from an A to a BA. Whenever possible, you should make up your absence by attending one of the other sections of the course that week. Otherwise you will miss out on pertinent information you will be expected to know upon entering the practicum. Grades: There will be five components to your final grade. o Attendance  Each seminar is worth 20 pts. o Quizzes  A quiz will be given in each seminar and will be worth 20 points each. o Homework/Activities  Each assignment will be worth 20 points, and these points will be factored in your participation grade. o Participation  Each seminar is worth 20 participation points. There will be activities and discussion in each seminar. Failure to participate in these activities (role playing, group activities, etc.) or discussion will result in points lost from your participation grade. o Croyden Visits  You will be required to visit Croyden for five hours during the semester. This can be five one-hour visits or three one-hour visits and one two-hour visit. Each visit is worth 20 points. If you fail to cancel your visit at least one hour in advance via email, you will lose your points for that visit. All four visits must be completed prior to enrollment in the practicum. Anyone
