China's Challenge for the Future: Family-Centeredness in Early Childhood Special Education
Pang, Yanhui; Richey, Dean
Journal of the International Association of Special Education, v7 n1 p11-21 Spr 2006
Chinese traditional and contemporary families are introduced specific to their structure, cultural background, and socioeconomic status and gender roles, followed by an introduction to the relationship between family-centered practices in early childhood special education (ECSE) and current practices in China. Given the specific characteristics of Chinese families and the current practices of family-centeredness in China's ECSE, there are several challenges that are worthy of special consideration. Recommendations are made in order to successfully implement family-centeredness in China's ECSE and for it to be a cultural "fit" with Chinese tradition and culture. (Contains 2 tables.)
