Clare Kilbride, one of 47 Augustana students currently on an intership term in Australia, works at the Lizard Centre, one of Australia's leading providers of intervention for young children with autism and related disorders.

She recently appeared in a news video report on autism that included the Lizard Centre.

A junior from Rock Island, Ill., Kilbride is majoring in Communication Sciences and Disorders. She is participating in the Australia internship program to further her education and experience in the field of speech pathology as well as travel abroad for the first time.

"I am participating in anticipation of learning a lot about myself and finding more ways to discern where in my field I would like to end up," she said.

The Lizard Centre opened its pediatric clinic in 2003. It is the largest applied behaviour analysis (ABA) clinic in Australia and the largest private autism-specific early intervention center in New South Wales.
