Cross-Cultural Lessons: Early Childhood Developmental Screening and Approaches to Research and Practice (PDF)
Created by: Community-University Partnership (CUP) for the Study of Children, Youth and Families
This handbook is designed to help the early childhood development community, teachers, service providers, researchers, clinicians, and local and provincial governments that serve immigrant and refugee families to understand the invisible realities that influence parental responses to questions on developmental screening tools. The first section of the handbook highlights the major issues related to the use of North American screening tools with immigrant and refugee children, problematic items and activities, and provides recommendations for consideration. The second section of the handbook provides useful lessons on cross-cultural approaches to research and practice used in this study to broaden our understanding of cross-cultural relationship-building processes.
