To prepare for a career in rehabilitation counseling, take your
high school's college prep curriculum. These classes should include
several years of mathematics and science, such as biology and
chemistry. To begin to gain an understanding of people and
societies, take history, psychology, and sociology classes. English
classes are important because you will need excellent communication
skills for this work. Some of your professional responsibilities
will include documenting your work and doing research to provide
your clients with helpful information; to do these things you will
undoubtedly be working with computers. Therefore, you should take
computer science classes so that you are skilled in using them. In
addition, you may want to consider taking speech and a foreign
language, both of which will enhance your communication skills.
