An Ethnographic Study of Cross-Cultural Communication with Puerto Rican-American Families in the Special Education System.
Harry, Beth
American Educational Research Journal, v29 n3 p471-94 Fall 1992
Ethnographic data were used to address the challenge of parent-professional interaction in the cross-cultural context of 12 Spanish-speaking Puerto Rican American families from low income backgrounds with learning-disabled or mildly mentally retarded children in special education. Illustrations from parent conferences show how parent participation can be restructured to include culturally different parents. (SLD)
