CIEE is committed to ensuring that its regional directors and local coordinators have the information they need to place and support international students with disabilities in U.S. host communities. MIUSA staff will travel to Orlando, Florida, to share best practices on disability inclusion at CIEE's annual conference.
Topics for the training on February 11, 2016, will include:

Additionally, a Youth Exchange and Study (YES) student who is blind will share her experience traveling from Turkey to live with a host family and attend a U.S. high school for an academic year.
