Students admitted into the CDIS Graduate Program have the option to begin clinical practicum and/or the AAC course in the summer prior to fall coursework. The benefits of participating in Summer Jumpstart are that you familiarize yourself with routines and processes of clinical practicum prior to beginning a full course load in the fall, you will maintain the same clients into the fall semester, and you will have one less client in the fall. If you choose to jumpstart your clinical practicum, you will receive two clients in the summer.
