Developing Cross-Cultural Competence: A Guide for Working with Children and Their Familiesby Eleanor W Lynch
Synopses & Reviews
The third edition of this bestselling professional resource and textbook highlights the cultural and ethnic diversity of families in the U.S. The book is designed to be used by a broad audience of pre-service professionals and interventionists who work with families and children with disabilities from diverse backgrounds, whose customs, beliefs, and values may differ from their own. Chapters provide up-to-date information about the history, demographics, and traditions, beliefs, and customs of each group with an emphasis on issues related to family, child rearing, and disability.
Book News Annotation:
Suitable as both a textbook and a reference for practitioners, this text is designed to enhance the cross-cultural competence of the full range of professionals providing educational, health care, and social services to families of children who have, or are at risk for, disabilities. It is also directed toward the administrators, politicians, and policy makers who influence delivery of these services in the U.S. It has been expanded and fully updated throughout, and now features a new chapter on families with South Asian roots.
