    Testimonials

    I am proud to say that I am a graduate of the Behavioural Psychology (BPYSC) program at St. Lawrence College.  The program provided me with abundance of positive skills and knowledge that I use every day in both my career and personal life. I had nothing but positive learning experiences while completing the program. The teachers were caring and took the time to get to know each student’s strengths and needs which I believe contributed to my success in the program. Upon graduating I was able to obtain employment immediate within Autism Services and have had many positive experiences working in the field.  I have gained experience delivering ABA services within individual and group settings, as well as, supervising a team of ABA Therapists delivering individual and group based services. At the time of graduation I did not know this, but the skills that I learned in the Behavioural Psychology program assisted me in completing the Masters of Applied Disability Studies program at Brock University.  Since completing my master’s level of education, I have become a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) and was recently given the opportunity to re-join the Behavioural Psychology teaching team. In 2013 I began supervising BPYSC students on placement, in 2014 I began tutoring for the program and in 2015 I was offered a part-time teaching experience with the program. All of the experiences that I have talked about are because of the Behavioural Psychology program.  The program teaches skills and knowledge that are currently being used within the field.  The teachers in the program have a vast amount of knowledge and experience regarding the field, which they used within their courses to offer state of the art education. As a result of graduating from the Behavioural Psychology program, I have been blessed with many experiences and I believe that there is many more experience awaiting me.
