Strategies to Involve Families of Latino Students with Disabilities: When Parent Initiative Is Not Enough
Rodriguez, Raymond Joseph; Blatz, Erin Teresa; Elbaum, Batya
Intervention in School and Clinic, v49 n5 p263-270 May 2014
Despite a growing literature on the value of family involvement for students with disabilities, there are ongoing misunderstandings about the reasons why culturally and linguistically diverse families of students with disabilities might be less involved with their child at school than other families. This article describes a project conducted with Latino families and with school personnel at schools serving predominantly Latino children that addresses why Latino families may become less involved. The authors describe school-level factors that may affect the initiative of Latino families to become involved at school, and suggest strategies school personnel can use to increase the involvement of Latino families.
