Suggested Responses: Students should describe children with special needs as those with identified developmental delays or exceptionalities that require support services in the home and classroom. They should identify children from historically underrepresented groups as those from ethnic groups other than mainstream, Euro-American culture. They should describe socioeconomic status as determined by level of education, income, place of residence, and the occupation of primary wage earners. Students should indicate that confusion of these terms will lead professionals to believe children of historically underrepresented groups are always poor and deprived. Such confusion may also lead teachers and caregivers to mislabel children of color as "special education" students. They should note that misconceptions about culture, class and, and exceptionality can lead to classroom bias and interfere with positive teacher-child, child-child, and parent-child interactions.
