Overview

The social, psychological, and educational needs of Asian Pacific American youth often go unmet. This book, written by multicultural educators, social workers, psychologists, and others, challenges stereotypical beliefs and seeks to provide, basic knowledge and direction for working with this population, often labeled as "the model minority."

Struggling To Be Heard offers various theoretical frameworks for understanding culture and language diversity in Asian Pacific American young people. The authors weave a unique tapestry integrating curriculum, instruction, mental health issues, language issues, delinquency, policy, disabilities, and cultures. They also offer critical recommendations for teachers, social workers, school psychologists, school administrators, bilingual professionals, and policy makers who work with Asian Pacific American children and youth so they can make a difference in the lives of Asian Pacific American students and address their unmet needs.
