The US educational and medical system is like a maze for culturally linguistically diverse families to navigate. As parents, we want the best outcomes for our children but due to language barriers, cultural and traditional belief, and even trauma, parents from culturally linguistically diverse (CLD)communities might have hard time to have meaningfully participation in their children?s educational process and medical care plan for their children with disability. It means beyond interpretation and translation. It is TRUST and RELATIONSHIP BUILDING. Effective use of cultural broker can bridge the gap in cross-cultural communication, improving the interconnection between school, families and communities.. OBJECTIVES: 1. Participants will understand the unique perspective of disability and special education from cultural diverse communities 2. Participants will understand how cultural belief can be a factor impeding their service access. 3. Participants will learn the cultural brokering model and how it can be used to effectively to promote parent engagement.
