ECEA 503 - Family and Culture

3 Credit Hours
The purpose of this course is to assist candidates in developing the requisite professional skills and dispositions to work cooperatively with diverse families, provide leadership in the community, and serve as an advocate for all young children, their families, their community, and the early childhood profession. This starts with the understanding that all young children are fully functioning members of a diverse and multicultural school, family and community. Candidates will gain insight into family systems, perspectives, and experiences by examining the social, economic, legislative and technological impacts on children and families, including families with special needs children and immigrant families with bilingual children. They will evaluate existing support services and service delivery models in the school and community with respect to diversity, exceptionality and family health and well-being, with a particular emphasis on strategies to promote and assure effective communication, collaboration and consultation between home, school, and community. Additionally, all candidates in this course will successfully complete mandated reporter training.
