Educational advocacy is a work that involves educating, empowering, and collaborating with all families of children with special needs including those from culturally and ethnically diverse populations. The U.S. cultural values embedded in the 6 main tenants of the IDEA legislation may act to impede the cultural sensitivity needed to work with families. Recognizing and addressing these sociocultural differences as they occur in our advocacy work is the subject of this presentation.
