Open and effective communication between teachers and parents—especially in the case of children in special education—is critical to student success.  More and more, this requires teachers to be able to communicate and work effectively with parents from a variety of cultural backgrounds. Cultural Reciprocity in Special Education: Building Family-Professional Relationships was written for special education professionals by two experts on inclusive education and cultural and linguistic diversity in order to facilitate positive and productive interactions between educators and families.

The book guides teachers through reflective practice and preparation, which includes

  • Examining their own cultural identities and roles
  • Considering how their values might affect interactions with families
  • Recognizing and rejecting stereotypes and treating each family and situation as unique
  • Avoiding judgments about “right” and “wrong” in regards to parenting styles and practices
  • Integrating ideas from different values systems in developing solutions that work for all parties

Written by Maya Kalyanpur and Beth Harry, Cultural Reciprocity in Special Education is a valuable inservice training resource that will help teachers learn how to build strong collaborative relationships with diverse students’ families in order to best serve the student.
