Parent Observation of a Teacher-Parent Relationship in Early Childhood Education.
Tesfamicael, Ghennet
Building a strong relationship between parents and their preschool-aged child's teacher can be difficult when the parents and teachers speak different languages and come from different cultures. This paper discusses how a parent from east Africa with language and cultural differences dealt with a local school system to ensure that her young children with speech and language delay obtained the educational and developmental services needed. The paper describes lessons learned to immigrant parents of children who speak English as a second language facing similar barriers. The paper also notes the special needs of parents with language and cultural differences and provides suggestions for early childhood education administrators and teachers on how to handle such needs and concerns. Contains 14 references. (Author/KB)
