About the book:

The timely second edition of this popular reference provides hard-to-find information and practical advice to professionals who are working with children and families from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. It includes facts about the influence of culture on people's beliefs, values, and behaviors; descriptions of the challenges families may have 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, Philipino, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Island, and Middle Eastern heritage. 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.
