Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This popular textbook gives you practical advice for working with children and families from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. You'll gain expert insight into the influence of culture on people's beliefs, values, and behaviors. And you'll learn about the challenges families may encounter when adapting to a different culture. Best of all, the authors show you how to foster more respectful and effective interactions with people of Anglo-European, Native American, African American, Latino, Asian, Pilipino, Native Hawaiian and Samoan, and Middle Eastern heritage--so you can provide truly family-centered services for children with disabilities.

Synopsis:

The second edition of this popular reference provides hard-to-find information and practical advice for professionals who work with children and families from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. It includes wisdom on the influence of culture on people's beliefs, values, and behaviors; descriptions of the challenges a family may face when adapting to a different culture; and strategies for fostering respectful and effective interactions. Drawing on the insight of expert contributors who are themselves members of the cultural groups they discuss, the book covers Anglo-European, Native American, African American, Latino, Asian, Pilipino, Native Hawaiian and Samoan, and Middle Eastern heritages. With updated content and expanded supplemental sections summarizing beliefs, customs, and courtesies, this book is essential reading for professionals who want to provide truly family-centered interventions for children with disabilities.
