Summary: The third edition of this bestselling text brings together detailed, accurate information on working with families and children with disabilities from specific cultural, ethnic, and language groups. Thoroughly updated and expanded, the book gives pre- and inservice interventionists

A primer on cultural competence. Readers will explore how various cultures view education, family structure, independence, control, and more--and they'll learn ways in which serv
ice providers can communicate effectively and respectfully with families.

In-depth knowledge of different cultures. Nine chapters on different groups, each written by experts from that culture, give readers up-to-date snapshots of history, demographics, traditions, values, beliefs, and attitudes toward child rearing and disability, as well as insightful advice on intervention.

Guidance on moving forward. Readers will get suggestions for improving their daily practice and the systems in which they work. They'll find useful guides to contrasting beliefs, values, and practices; significant cultural events and holidays; sample vocabulary words and phrases; and a list of suggested books, films, and other media. Filled with timely new additions such as a chapter on South Asian roots, open-ended case studies on ethical dilemmas, and an expanded discussion on Middle Eastern roots, this is a comprehensive, must-have reference for any early intervention professional working with families whose customs, beliefs, and values may differ from their own.
