Based upon significant early research and upon current findings regarding cultural and linguistic competency, transitional barriers that often arise when students from diverse backgrounds enter school will be described.
Importantly, various solutions to the barriers and to difficulties with engagement and academic and social success will be provided so that the average clinician will have more ideas of how to approach diversity “on Monday morning”. Various culturally responsive practices and strategies focusing on interactions, assessment, intervention, and social equity will be provided along with several case study demonstrations.
