People with disabilities studying abroad can expect to encounter cultural attitudes that vary from country to country. In what ways can travelers with disabilities plan for, adjust to, and even shape attitudes? How might international exchange professionals help move attitudes toward the positive through longstanding relationships with overseas partners? This session will showcase CIEE alumni with disabilities and resident directors (RD) from recent programs with a focus on cultural differences related to disability that may impact the attitudes of the host community, exchange staff, and students with disabilities.
