Developing Culturally Competent Programs for Families of Children with Special Needs. 2nd Edition.
Roberts, Richard N.; And Others
This monograph provides a framework for programs, states, and organizations to think about the issues in developing culturally competent programs for families of children with special needs, and offers a variety of examples from programs across the country that are providing exemplary services. The monograph is designed to help program makers compare their efforts with others, to provide options for planning additional services or altering services in existing programs, or to develop new programs. Monograph sections cover the following topics: (1) general issues in developing culturally competent programs as they relate to community-based family-centered care; (2) specific issues in policy and practice, such as assessment, outreach, family involvement, staffing, use of translators, client load, professional-paraprofessional partnerships, and training and support; and (3) descriptions of programs funded by the Bureau of Maternal and Child Health that serve families in several different types of settings.
