"Without question, I would recommend the program to anyone interested in working with people with disabilities. It sets you up in an excellent position to take many different avenues in a counseling career."

"I chose the field because I felt very passionately about working with people with disabilities. The Assumption program worked perfectly with my desire to continue working while pursuing a graduate degree. The learning environment was supportive and collaborative, with professors and students who are equally dedicated to the field.

"Most of what I was learning was directly applicable to my work and I constantly draw upon a lot of the knowledge I acquired in the program. It has made me a better provider for my patients."
