Today's foreign language teachers are increasingly expected to be skilled in addressing multiple intelligences and differing learning styles, yet no reliable resources exist that consolidate the best of what is known about the broad spectrum of disabilities that are already or soon to be in our classrooms.

The first of its kind, Worlds Apart? Disability and Foreign Language Learning offers critical and practical essays with insights applicable across the language-teaching spectrum. Written in English, Worlds Apart? brings together scholars and teachers from around the world who examine foreign language education from general  requirements through advanced literature and film courses to study abroad, showing how to enable the success of students with disabilities at every step of the way. Thought-provoking chapters explore the nature of language itself, the best avenues toward acquiring proficiency, and the lives of disabled people at home and abroad. Worlds Apart? Disability and Foreign Language Learning offers fresh, new perspectives on the inquiries into culture and diversity undertaken in the academy today.

Tammy Berberi is assistant professor of French, University of Minnesota, Morris. Elizabeth C. Hamilton is associate professor of German, Oberlin College. Ian M. Sutherland is associate professor of Foreign Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, Gallaudet University.
