The Department of Counselor Education Rehabilitation Counseling program is committed to improving the lives of persons with disabilities by providing qualified (CRC-eligible) professional rehabilitation counselors trained in the current best practices of rehabilitation services to work in public and private agencies serving a diverse state and nation.

Is this for me?

This program is for you if you enjoy managing caseloads, using assessment tools, investigating service options, planning programs, and working directly with persons with disabilities.


Graduates of the NEIU Rehabilitation Counseling program have found employment in State, Federal, community-based, and private agencies.
