    Testimonials

    My time at St. Lawrence changed the direction of my life, professionally and personally.

    Graduating from McMaster with a B.A. and later from Queens' with a B.Ed did little to get me a job or satisfaction in life. After working with a previous graduate from two St. Lawrence programs, I took her advice and enrolled in Autism and Behaviour Science for the 2012-2013 academic year. With knowledge and skills I gained from this program, I was able to secure several job offers in Ontario and in Alberta. After working with the phenomenal Terry Duncan at Children's Autism Services of Edmonton, I moved into my current position as a behavioural specialist at a residential care company in Edmonton. I love my job because I can make effective change in people's lives every day.

    Personally, I made lifelong friends with my program colleagues and greatly enjoyed working in the Math and Writing Center. I learned that its not necessarily about competition for the next job (as it always seems to be with teaching), but about the network you build to help each other. While in my program, I met with Early Childhood Educators, Personal Support Workers, psychology students and other future professionals; Human Services is about helping people and the best way to do that is through team approach. In part due to my time at St. Lawrence, I have a wonderful team.
