For nonnative speakers, the English language is a point of access to information, education, employment, and other opportunities. Whether an English language course or program is accessible will determine whether students with disabilities will also reap these benefits. The AWAY Topics offers English language instructors and administrators resources on including students with disabilities in their programs, including tips for inclusive course design, perspectives from English language learners with disabilities, and facts every English program administrator should know. It also guides people with disabilities on how to access English language learning opportunities at home, abroad or online. The AWAY Topics is published by the National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange, which is administered by Mobility International USA and sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. Request free copies of the latest AWAY Topics to share with your colleagues or visit the MIUSA website for a free download: http://www.miusa.org/publications/books/awaytopics4
