Developing Cultural Self-Awareness: The First Step in Values Clarification for Early Interventionists.
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v12 n3 p333-50 Fall 1992
This paper argues that early interventionists' awareness of their own cultural beliefs is an essential first step in developing effective collaboration with culturally different families. Areas of potential dissonance between professionals and families include interpretation of the meaning of disability, concepts of family structure and identity, goals of education, parent-child interaction, and communication style.
