Emphasis on Diversity
Effective provision of support services also requires awareness, knowledge, and skill development in dealing with diverse populations. Therefore, throughout course work, references and applications will be made to how existing knowledge and skills can be applied and adapted to serve every child. Particular attention is given to the skills needed to work with ethnic and linguistic minority children and their families. Efforts are made to recruit graduate students who are reflective of the diverse population of students attending public schools in California.
