PACER Internships

PACER has welcomed professionals from foreign countries for periods of study and internship. The two- to six-month customized programs, often held in conjunction with a university, have provided these individuals with opportunities to observe and participate in daily activities at PACER. They take part in workshops, presentations, parent meetings, and public policy issues that are relevant for families of children with disabilities in the U.S. PACER appreciates and learns from the perspectives brought by visitors from many places in the world.
