    Testimonials

    I would absolutely recommend the Autism and Behavioural Science program to anyone who is interested in working with individuals with special needs. Transitioning from university to college was an adjustment, but I was amazed at how hard the incredible teaching staff pushed and supported the students throughout the year ensuring success. I believe that the knowledge and skills gained through coursework and field placements are unparalleled, and give graduates the tools they need to be successful in the field. Having just completed the program, I feel I have a very strong knowledge of Autism Spectrum Disorders and a specialized skill set which has allowed for several employment opportunities immediately following graduation.
