Intern Training

Every year, usually in November, SEP starts training a new group of intern members therapists and special needs teachers. Upon joining SEP intern members benefit from a 2 week intensive transdisciplinary training aimed at improving knowledge, skills and abilities. The training is very interactive and hands-on and focuses on child and family directed therapy intervention.

After the training intern members join the SEP projects for minimum 6 and maximum 12 months to have practical experience in the transdisciplinary approach. This creates the opportunity to be exposed to working together with special needs teachers, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, and physiotherapists.

Every year SEP trains average 25 young professionals from the different disciplines. If you are just qualified from college or university from one of the disciplines within SEP, and you are interested in this training, you can e-mail us at
