Simply by asking questions about inclusion of people with disabilities in international exchange, the research shines a spotlight on areas of progress and areas that lag and draws attention to questions that, when answered, may offer valuable information to foster more effective inclusion. For example, although students with physical disabilities typically represent 26 percent of students with disabilities on campuses, these students make up only 4 percent of the disabled students who participate in study abroad. What facilitates inclusion of students with other types of disabilities that is not working for students with physical disabilities? In another 2004 national student survey by the Higher Education Research Institute (www.gseis.ucla.edu/heri/heri.html), 57 percent of students with orthopedic disabilities reported “some” to “very good” chance that they would study abroad while in college. Their interest in study abroad was similar to those with other disability types and non-disabled students. How can programs work to identify and remove barriers that impact students with physical disabilities more significantly than those with other disabilities in realizing their interests? Access overseas is not insurmountable, as people with physical disabilities live, travel and study in countries around the world. Access may not be what students are used to at home, but efforts can be made to creatively address solutions. The National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange provides free technical assistance and has compiled strategies that education abroad offices and organizations can use to increase participation by people with disabilities. For example, the Clearinghouse’s online book, Practice of Yes! Working with Overseas Partners to Successfully Include Students with Disabilities, draws on the experiences and suggestions of 30 study abroad professionals to examine and recommend strategies to resolve attitudinal, cultural and logistical barriers individuals with disabilities may encounter in pursuing an international exchange experience. Another publication, Survival Strategies for Going Abroad: A Guide for People with Disabilities, shares advice from over 20 people with disabilities on successfully navigating while overseas. In addition, NAFSA: Association of International Educators has formed a committee to explore strategies for serving students with psychiatric disabilities in programs abroad; their recommendations will be shared through conference presentations and publications.
