Rehabilitation counseling is a process whereby the counselor works collaboratively with an individual with a disability to understand existing problems, barriers, and potentials in order to facilitate the client’s effective use of personal and environmental resources for personal, social, career, and community adjustment. 

The program is one of the only rehabilitation counselor training programs in the world that requires specialty course work and clinical field experience in assistive technology, in addition to providing comprehensive professional training that emphasizes evidence-based clinical practice, vocational rehabilitation, and disability studies.
