Description of Resource

This resource illustrates that parents' needs, skills, and interests evolve as they move through the stages of Cultural Survivor, Cultural Learner, Cultural Connector, and Cultural Leader. Understanding these stages better equips educators to identify where families are, as well as their unique challenges, and helps schools determine how to best support them.
