This series of four fact sheets addresses the health and human service needs of Asian American children living in New York City. The first fact sheet, "Snapshots of New York City: An Overview of Asian American Families," discusses the diversity of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) population in New York, examining AAPI neighborhoods, family resources, and education and linguistic isolation. The second fact sheet, "Education and New York's Asian American Children," focuses on understanding English, the progress of all English Language Learners (ELLs), failure to graduate, lack of Asian American presence, cultural influences, and parent involvement. The third fact sheet, "Child and Family Health of New York's Asian American Community," discusses barriers to health care, maternity care, hepatitis and tuberculosis, mental health, and adolescent health concerns. The fourth fact sheet, "Understanding Issues of Abuse and Neglect and Asian American Families," focuses on linguistic obstacles, cultural differences, issues of neglect, foster care, and immigration law.
