Multicultural Perspectives in Special Education
Annotations by Laura Buehner
Track #117424
Format: Resource list
As American society continues to grow in diversity, special education needs for children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds need to be an increasing area of focus for educators. Overrepresentation of ethnic and linguistic minorities in SPED placement, as well as late diagnosis of learning disabilities due to language differences are but two serious areas of concern. Both point to the need for more accurate identification and assessment of special needs in a multicultural setting. Other critical areas include determining effective methods and appropriate curriculum to maximize the learning potential of these students. Awareness of cultural differences and their implications in the educational setting are also imperative so that educators can show sensitivity and communicate effectively with the families of all students with special needs. The websites and links found on this page provide information and resources that address these issues and more, as we examine the complex subject of multiculturalism as it applies to special education.
