SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass. - Amzeal -- The New England Center for Children® (NECC®), a global leader in autism education and research, announced a rewarding summer season of learning and honors. Among the milestones were completion of NECC's largest class of summer interns ever; the successful 24th Annual Carlos Placido Dunkin' Golf Classic for Autism; generous gifts from Income Research+Management and Apex Entertainment; and selection as a National Association of Special Education Teachers (NASET) School of Excellence.

NECC's Summer Internship Program is the largest of its type in the country. This past summer 47 students from 13 states and three foreign countries completed a 10-week paid internship program. The interns worked side-by-side with direct-care staff in the day school and residences, as well as in the Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language departments.

"Introducing our interns to ABA and the great work NECC does is crucial to the future of the human services industry," said Ellen Graham, MA, CAGS, program director of graduate studies and internships at NECC.
