Interacting with the Culturally Different Family.
Volta Review, v89 n5 p46-58 Sep 1987
Discussion focuses on American-Western attitudes toward culturally different families and how those attitudes may affect communication between American school personnel and individual families with hearing-impaired children. The need to develop or widen sensitivity to nonverbal and verbal cross-cultural communication is stressed and the problems posed by semantics and etiquette are explored. (Author/VW)
