Reaching ESL and International Education Professionals

In the coming months, the NCDE will present at two national conferences:
The Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) in
February, and the Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages
(TESOL) in March. Both sessions will answer: How can educational
professionals expand their knowledge and experience to equally include
students with and without disabilities?

The AIEA session "Leadership Solutions: Including Students with
Disabilities in International Education" will include MIUSA CEO Susan
Sygall, University of California, Berkeley Disability Services Director Paul
Hippolitus, Institute of International Education's Vice President for
Student Exchanges Mary Kirk, and U.S. Fulbright Student and Fulbright
Ambassador Franz Knupfer. http://aieaworld.org/events/2011-conf-registration.htm

The TESOL session "Considerations for Teaching Students with Learning,
Vision or Other Disabilities" will include Stephanie Gray of NCDE, Kelly
McMinn of University of Oregon American English Institute, Amy Reid of
World Learning, and Pat Mytkowicz of Curry College, Program for the
Advancement of Learning for Multilingual Students.
