If a student knows that he or she will require accommodations at the internship site, it is best to encourage the student to disclose to the site supervisor early in the process, or to give the field placement coordinator permission, in writing, to disclose after the placement has been made (Scott et al, 1997, p.46). One student, Susan, was majoring in mass communications and was seeking an internship with a radio reading service. Susan uses a wheelchair and also has a learning disability. The VCU Career Connections staff initially contacted the Director of the Reading Service to inquire about accessibility of the building. The student made arrangements to visit the internship site and found she was able to maneuver within the recording studio with minimal adjustments to the work setting and continued with the application process.

Several students with disabilities participating in the VCU Career Connections Program benefited from extensive, on-site supports in all areas of the internship process. The staff modified techniques and strategies used in supported employment to assist the students in successfully completing their internships and preparing them for employment. Support is given on site to facilitate communication between site supervisor, co-workers, and intern. In addition, staff members conduct task analyses to identify various skills, and eventually provide the necessary one-on-one training until skill acquisition is met. Assistance is also provided with identifying and coordinating effective accommodations for those students with no previous work history.
