Study in Comparative Special Education in the Dominican Republic

During Winter Intersession, students have the opportunity to study in the Dominican Republic.  This study includes learning about the Dominican culture, the educational system, international teaching opportunities, and special education services as they evolve.  In January of 2014, 17 students took advantage of this amazing opportunity.  During their ten day stay in the DR, the students had the opportunity to teach in two different schools and to participate in several service learning projects.
