Observation & Training

Our Role

Our primary purpose is to serve as a training facility for university students enrolled in Human Development and Family Sciences courses, as well as other related fields. University students are involved in the UT Lab School as student observers, classroom assistants, practicum students, and volunteers. We currently employ and mentor students in the following domains: Early Childhood Education, Special Education, Clinical Psychology, Social Work, and Human Development and Family Sciences.


Our Master Teachers provide over 120 hours of direct mentoring and supervision of adult learners. We also provide mentoring, supervision, and support to students in ULN and BDP. If you are interested in volunteering or working at the UT Lab School, please check our employment opportunities or email us at ppfcfl@utlists.utexas.edu.

If you are part of a program outside of UT and are interested in a tour, training, or observation, please check out our Research & Community section for more information!
