Diploma in Special Care Counselling


The Special care counselling program (DEC) trains students to intervene appropriately with a range of clients having difficulties adapting or fitting-in socially.


Special care counselling technicians help people to solve their personal and social problems and work in close collaboration with various professionals, in multidisciplinary teams consisting of remedial teachers, psychologists, school managements and occupational therapists.


Collaboration with parents or the family experiencing difficulties is an important part of the profession. Therefore, being open to others, having good listening and empathy skills and working well in teams are all essential assets for evolving in this field.


By collaborating to the success of the LaSalle des Petits Daycare, aspiring child care workers can gain a better understanding of the profession. They can observe and learn from the daycare’s work environment and be better prepared for the job market.
