Overview

The Community Integration through Co-operative Education (CICE) program is a two year certificate program designed for adults with developmental disabilities, intellectual disabilities, acquired brain injury or other significant learning challenges who wish to further their education/vocational training in a community college setting.

As a student, you will have the opportunity to complete an individualized program of study made up of courses from an area of concentration selected from St. Lawrence College’s program offerings, based on seat availability and suitability to your skill level. The courses will be tailored through a modification process to fit your academic abilities. You will be offered opportunities to develop and enhance your academic skills, and to develop and/or refine your abilities in a number of potential work envi­ronments through field placement experi­ences arranged by CICE program staff.

You will receive support such as curriculum modification, note-taking, tutoring and other related academic services as needed. Upon successful completion of all courses and the field placement requirements you will graduate with an Ontario College Certificate in CICE.
