Cultural Competency Primer: Early Intervention and Pre-School
Course Objectives, Outcomes & Other Relevant Information

The United States is becoming ever more linguistically and culturally diverse with a multicultural mix very different in race, religion, and ethnicity. By the year 2050 82% of the increase in population from 2005 to 2050 will be due to immigrants and their children - the majority of whom are a diverse multicultural mix very different in race, religion, and ethnicity. Non-Hispanic Whites are no longer projected to make up the strong majority of the US population by 2042. Instead, the Hispanic or Latino population will rise from 16% today to 30% by 2050. 

In the last three decades the percentage of the country's non-English language speakers grew by greater than 140%. Yet, at the start of the 21st century, Minorities receive lower quality of health care even when socioeconomic and access related factors were controlled. Why is this so?

These statistics portend an unfair reality: non-dominant racial and ethnic groups in the United States experience unequal burdens of disease and death because of disparities in health care. Our current health and educational system is rife with bias that encourages less than equal health to minorities. These disparities in healthcare are often due to bias, stereotype, and prejudice. Combating these trends is essential and backed by the full legislative backing of Presidential Executive Order 13166, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Learning how to be culturally and linguistically competent is critical for educators, therapists, service coordinators, and early intervention officials. Learn how to be culturally competent when interacting with families from the diverse spectrum of unique cultural differences, including race and ethnicity, national origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, physical disability, immigration status, disability status, level of education, age, social class or geographic location.

Learn about Ethnocentrism, Essentialism, cross-cultural communication, cultural literacy, concordance the appropriate use of interpreters, and how to practice multicultural competence. Learn to self-examine your bias to avoid prejudice, stereotypes and improve cultural sensitivity with case studies in appropriate cultural and linguistic competency. Course outline includes examples of real/hypothetical situations, the theoretical basis for decision making as well as legal standards of behavior consistent with the Texas (and other State board) Practice Acts & APTA code of ethics for professional conduct.

The Cultural Competency Primer is an essential review for all professionals who work in the early intervention and pre-school setting!
