Cultural and Linguistic Diversity: Strategies for Supporting Youth and their Families

“In a nation of immigrants, where the minority is rapidly becoming the majority and poverty continues to be a challenge for many American families, it is imperative that transition services and outcomes for CLD youth with disabilities be improved” (Achola & Greene, 2016). This interactive session will provide information and considerations for serving culturally and linguistically diverse youth and their family members. To highlight the importance of diversity awareness, an overview of Person-Centered vs. Family-Centered transition planning practices will be provided. A discussion of best practices will encourage participants to develop positive and holistic relationships with the individuals they serve.
