SPECIAL REQUEST FROM THE CLA
The CLA invites you to provide input on your diversity-related learning experiences at Cal Poly.
If intrinsic motivation to help isn't quite enough to get you to participate...you might be interested in being entered into a raffle to win gift cards (extrinsic motivator). Or perhaps you want to help PSYCD have more respondents than any other department (competitive motivator). Whatever your reasons, we need your participation. It's short, simple and important. TIA for helping!

Temporary Suspension of PSY Minor Applications
- Due to the highly impacted nature of psychology courses, no new PSY minor applications will be accepted in 2021-22 (TBD when we will reinstate the minor - please check the PSYCD website in Fall 2022 for further updates).
- Psychology classes remain open to all students with the necessary prerequisites - feel free to take the courses that interest you even though you are not taking them "for" a minor. Any student who will have completed PSY minor requirements by the end of Fall 2021 can still submit a minor application form and be awarded the minor.
- For expanded information about this decision, please see our Tuesday Newsday archives.#Archives

Applicants must be junior PSY or CD majors with a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 and major GPA of 3.5.

Transitions Mental Health Paid Internship
Little Wings Preschool
Little Wings is looking for a Preschool Teacher assistant who can help to create a fun learning environment. The Preschool Teacher will be responsible for supporting the lead teacher in monitoring and teaching the 2-6 year old children in our program. Current position will support with the 2/3 year old children in the morning and 2-6 year old combination children in the afternoon. Our school has a 50/50 combination of children with special needs and typically developing children in their class.

Monarch Behavior Solutions
Monarch Behavior Solutions is currently looking to hire 1-2 behavior technicians ring part time to full time (10-30 hours per week) and can offer flexible work scheduling for students. Pay ranges between $15-25/hour. The position(s) offer tremendous hands-on experience for anyone interested in pursuing a career path supporting children/families with unique learning needs. We are now 100% center-based, which allows for really meaningful supervision and team building amongst coworkers. And while we are dedicated ABA provider, families tell us our programs feel different than other ABA providers they have worked with in the past. I believe this is because we really focus on understanding the whole child -- the family dynamics/culture/priorities, the child's learning history, and what is not just behaviorally indicated, but what is developmentally appropriate and supportive for the child. More information about our agency and programming can be found on our website: monarchbehaviorsolutions.com
Anyone interested in applying can email our Clinical Director, Whitney Higgins at firstname.lastname@example.org
