Working with Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Children and Families

 

Diversity is one of the 12 content areas of the WI Core Competencies for Professionals Working with Young Children and Their Families. It is essential to be aware of the differences in culture, national origin, language, family structure, disability, religious beliefs, spirituality, economic status, and child rearing practices in any role or setting. When services are provided they should be in a culturally and linguistically responsive manner that honors the context, culture, and needs of the child and family.
