INTERN CORNER

Meet Rachel Younger 

Children's Center Intern

I am getting a doctorate in school psychology from the University of Memphis. My hopes for the future include to be able to provide supervision services to students, developmental and mental health assessments, and consultation for early childhood centers.

I am interested in Infant Mental Health because of my passion for early childhood assessment and intervention. As a school psychologist, Infant Mental Health is the first line of defense before a child enters school. I love working with preschool age children and interested in how Infant Mental Health principles can be applied in preschool and other early childhood settings and how Infant Mental Health affects assessment of disorders that occur in early childhood.
