    If so, how, and what are the ramifications of the choice? Perhaps Anthony Behill, a member of the Chumash Tribe whose grandson attends a child-care program in California, best summed up the importance of focusing on diversity in the classroom. They encounter tensions between what schools expect and do and their own practices at home, both indirectly through messages that their children bring home and directly through their own interactions with teachers and other school personnel. Organized around major concepts, the text helps readers understand the background of EBD, the origins of disordered behaviors, types of disorders and the procedures associated with assessment.

    Because this is often the first meeting between you and the parents of the children in your program, it can set the tone for your ongoing relationship and lay the foundation for open communication on sensitive topics, including race and culture. Do I work with parents to identify when to validate home languages and dialects and when to emphasize standard English? Available evidence is largely anecdotal and typically collected in conjunction with parent-focused intervention efforts. The flexibility in instructional practices that these principles suggest—offering multiple ways for children to demonstrate their learning, to participate in classroom activities, and to work interactively with adults and other children—may be particularly conducive to teaching diverse groups of students.

    In less critical cases, talk to parents about your classroom routine and their home routines. But that notion has gotten a lot of pushback — especially in San Antonio early education, where longtime nonprofits and the city-sponsored Pre-K 4 SA program are challenging long-held ideas about what an involved parent looks like. It is also intended for professionals who work with children and their families in a variety of other roles, such as social workers, special educators, and early interventionists, and for use in college courses focused on early childhood education and child development. Later she became a director of child care programs and helped to open several pilot projects including a therapeutic child care program and an infant-center. Katie Anderson, a youth services consultant with the Oregon State Library, said that the Library Services and Technology Act also funds statewide programs like research databases, online career services, educational tools for school librarians and a book courier service. It considers research, practice, and policies relating to opening both pathways and pipelines and bridges across the social sciences—developmental and social psychology, sociology, anthropology, and education—by integrating findings on five issues core to this problem.
