Arab American Children With Disabilities : Considerations for Teachers and Service Providers (Hardcover)
about this item
Despite a proliferation of special education literature on racial minorities over the past three decades, research and writing on Arab American children with disabilities remains remarkably sparse. This book fills that gap by promoting culturally appropriate services for Arab-American children with disabilities. Special education and service providers in the U.S.—including school psychologists, rehabilitation counsellors, and social workers—are increasingly likely to work with Arab Americans with disabilities. By focusing on this marginalized minority population, Al Khatib provides much-needed context and direction for service providers and researchers working with the Arab-American community. Offering an overview of special education and the rights guaranteed under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), this book alsohelps Arab-American families understand the special education process and advocate for their children.
