Education Assistant and Community Support

What You’ll Learn

The gifts we bring

People with disabilities are supported as valued members of society who have a multitude of gifts, talents and abilities. Class experience in this program facilitates innovative and experiential learning, projects, a student club for community engagement and the support of practice-based research.

What to expect

Located at our Interurban campus, the EACS program is 10 months, full-time, with part-time options available. Courses occur at various times during the week and homework includes both assignments and readings. Keeping up with the readings is very important as it leads to richer in-class discussion and participation.

As the terms progress your class time will increase from 18 hours per week to 28, which includes a spring practicum placement along with a seminar and capstone course. This program covers content to prepare individuals to work in the school system as well as community settings.

Term 1

In your first term, you will take five courses. Core courses include community living foundations, health & wellness, and development & diversity.

Term 2 & Practicum

In your second term, you will participate in your first practicum placement plus take four courses. In your third term, you will dedicate your time to your final practicum through a 24 hour a week placement along with a seminar and capstone course, totalling 28 hours per week.
