Culturally Responsive Early Intervention Programs: Issues in India.
Srinivasan, Bharati; Karlan, George R.
International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v44 n4 p367-85 Dec 1997
This paper explores influences of economic factors on sociocultural aspects of traditional, industrial, and "transitional" societies, with India an example of a transitional society. Links between socioeconomic contexts, child-rearing goals and practices, and early intervention programs are considered. Child-rearing goals and practices in Indian culture are seen to be incompatible with Western concepts of effective early intervention. (DB)
