As counselor educators, it is our role to prepare our students to be able to work with a wide variety of clients, including those with developmental disabilities, appropriately.  This presentation will give a brief overview of developmental disabilities and mental illness as well as specific ways in which counselor educators can integrate working with this population into already established courses, such as psychopathology and multicultural.  Ideas for lecture, experiential activities, peer teaching, and others tools will be discussed in order to help students prepare to work with this population. By adding these learning opportunities into the curriculum, counselor educators can better prepare their students to work with this growing and challenging population.
