SLC Scores Above Provincial Average in Annual Survey 

Nearly 90 per cent (89) SLC graduates are working within six months of graduating, scoring above the provincial average of 86.2 per cent, according to the annual Key Performance Indicator (KPI) survey released September 2019.  

St. Lawrence College also scored well above the provincial average in three of the four of the top KPIs:  

  • 83.8 per cent of St. Lawrence College graduates were satisfied or very satisfied with the quality of their education; provincially, the graduate satisfaction rate was 79.9 per cent. 
  • 76.9 per cent of St. Lawrence College students were satisfied or very satisfied with the quality of education, while 75.7 per cent of students across the province reported satisfaction.
  • 88.6 per cent employers said they are satisfied or very satisfied with the SLC graduates they have hired.   

Provincial KPIs are gathered annually by two independent research firms on behalf of Ontario’s 24 colleges and for the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. For complete KPI results visit www.collegesontario.org.

Communicative Disorders Assistant students use hands-on techniques in living lab at the Centre for Behavioural Studies 

Students in the Communicative Disorders Assistant (CDA) graduate certificate program are gaining practical, clinical experience by assisting in weekly speech therapy sessions with children aged four to eight. 

The Centre for Behavioural Studies at SLC will work with 11 children in two, 8-week blocks of weekly speech therapy sessions this October. Christiane Haberl, professor and coordinator of the CDA program, supervises the half-hour weekly sessions with the children who have a mild-to moderate speech sound disorder, ie., difficulty with pronouncing a few speech sounds. 

CDA students work groups of two or three students to each of the 10 clients, observing and participating in the sessions, which are led by Christiane. The Centre’s bright and friendly therapy rooms easily accommodate the children, parent, students and supervisor. 

Students complete weekly lab-observation assignments that also includes collecting data and observing intervention techniques (prompting, modeling, shaping, reinforcement, feedback, and error correction).  For the final assignment, students develop a lesson plan and carry out articulation therapy intervention with their assigned child (under direct supervision of Christiane) and create home practice programs. 

Feedback from both parents and CDA students last year was very positive! Attendance was very good, and the children seemed to enjoy the activities, eagerly running into the therapy room. "Having this practical experience has been invaluable for my CDA students. I can observe how they are relating their observations to the topics we cover in class, allowing for deep and meaningful learning. Being able to practice listening for speech sounds and noticing the minute changes in articulation that result from a clinician’s use of intervention techniques is something I could never re-create in a classroom-teaching situation. This experience, along with the interaction with children and parents, is going to allow my CDA students to be very well prepared for field placement,” Christiane said. 

"Many thanks to everyone who has been involved in making this happen, specifically Louise Chatterton Luchuk, for approving my learning plan, with the creation of this lab, and to Pamela Johnson, Manager of the Centre for Behavioural Studies for supporting the logistical aspects of the clinic."
