Abstract:A literature review about the effectiveness of counselors with disabilities was conducted. Interviews were also held with two graduate students in a Master’s level graduate School Counseling and Guidance program and two school counselors currently employed by a public school to obtain anecdotal evidence in support or negation of the literature. One graduate student has a disability, the other does not; one employed school counselor has a disability, the other does not. Most interviewee responses imply school counselors with disabilities might be more effective than school counselors without disabilities because of probable higher levels of empathy due to difficult challenging life experiences.
