Disability Culture in U.S.

The United States is one of the most accessible and welcoming countries in the world for people with disabilities and individuals who are taking part in international exchange programs. During your time in the U.S. as a Professional Fellow, please feel free to ask questions of project staff at your host sites. Do not be afraid to express any concerns you may have, as we all learn from each other.
