Culturally Responsive Practices for Youth and Young Adults with and At Risk for Disabilities

Culturally responsive practices (CRP) is of paramount importance given the marked demographics shifts in the U.S. population. In order to continue to meet the evolving needs of all students- especially culturally and linguistically diverse youth and young adults with and at risk for disabilities; a greater understanding of equity and inclusion in education is warranted. This session is designed to center the importance of culture in the application of pedagogical and behavioral interventions. We intend to demonstrate how CRP can be used to build positive-student teacher relationships; enhance teacher-parent collaboration and communication, and foster an inclusive and caring learning environment with high expectations with the goal of positively improving educational outcomes.

Presenters:
Dr. Bettie Ray Butler & Doctoral Fellow Sonja Gadd both from the
Urban Education Collaborative & NTACT at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte
