An Opportunity for Your Students who have Disabilities to Share about Their English Language Learning Experiences
Do you have an international student with a disability studying English in your classroom or program? The National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange (NCDE) wants to hear from your students! Students with disabilities can use the fillable online form (http://www.miusa.org/ncde/stories/ESLform) to submit information about their experiences studying English at home and abroad. This includes non-native English speakers with hearing, vision, cognitive, learning, mental, physical, chronic health or other disabilities. Their story could be featured in an upcoming issue of A World Awaits You (AWAY) Journal (http://www.miusa.org/ncde/away)! The NCDE, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and administered by Mobility International USA, provides free information and referral services related to the participation of people with disabilities in international exchange programs and is currently gathering best practices, lessons learned and success stories of inclusive ESOL classrooms and exchange programs.
