Mental health among Mexican-origin immigrant families: The roles of cumulative sociodemographic risk and immigrant-related stress. Race and Social Problems, 10, Abstract: The current study examined the unique effects of cumulative sociodemographic risk and immigrant-related stress on mental health symptoms among Mexican-origin immigrant parents and their school-age children. Further, this study tested whether the effects of cumulative sociodemographic risk and immigrant-related stress on child mental health were mediated by parent mental health.
Participants included Mexican-origin immigrant families. Immigrant-related stress was found to predict parent mental health, which in turn predicted child mental health. Cumulative sociodemographic risk did not predict parent or child mental health. Mental health symptoms generally decreased over time, but for children, change in mental health symptoms depended on parent mental health symptoms.

Focus groups elicited challenges and benefits of life as an immigrant mother. These results highlight the importance of developing new questionnaires to elicit stress exposures for Mexican immigrant mothers. Findings also suggest the value of intervention strategies and social policies that would ultimately improve maternal and child health in this marginalized population. Sullivan, A. Demography and early academic skills of students from immigrant families: The kindergarten class of School Psychology Quarterly, 31 , Descriptive statistics were used to estimate the sociodemographic characteristics of this population.
Regression was used to examine the relations between nativity, child characteristics, and family characteristics to reading and mathematics skills in kindergarten. These students were more racially, linguistically, and socioeconomically diverse than students from U. These results indicate the importance of considering parent nativity when examining the outcomes and needs of students from immigrant families. Adair, J. Harvard Educational Review , 3 , Discrimination, however, can still be an obstacle for many children of Latinx immigrants because they often receive less sophisticated and dynamic learning experiences than their white, native-born peers.
Drawing on empirical work with more than two hundred superintendents, administrators, teachers, parents, and young children, they recount how caring, experienced educators explained that Latinx immigrant students could not handle dynamic, agentic learning experiences because they lacked vocabulary and how the children in those classrooms said that learning required still, obedient, and quiet bodies. Green, Tiffany L. Abstract: The birth experiences and prenatal behaviors of Black immigrant mothers have received relatively little attention. Literature has focused in recent years on birth outcomes among immigrant mothers compared to native-born mothers, and within-group differences in infant health among Blacks.
This report compares prenatal behaviors and birth outcomes of Black immigrant mothers to those of other immigrant and U. It finds that Black immigrant mothers are less likely to give birth to preterm or low-birth-weight infants than U. Pandya, J. Digital literacies through an intersectional lens: The case of Javier.

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to examine, through an intersectional lens, how digital video composing can be an act of redistributive social justice for students with learning disabilities. The authors describe how he made meaning in various modes, across modes, and how his intersectional identities inflected his meaning-making and were visible in his video artifacts. Javier was an able digital composer, made meaning across modes and was attentive to audience. Javier was able to compose semiotically powerful messages with socially powerful digital tools. Children traditionally underserved by innovations in digital making should not be left out.

Countering Gender Discrimination and Negative Gender Stereotypes: Effective Policy Responses
Multiagent child, parent, teacher, clinician and standardized assessments were conducted at baseline to assess for child trauma and psychological distress. Analyses indicate that PTSD symptoms as reported by parent were significantly higher for children of detained and deported parents compared to citizen children whose parents were either legal permanent residents or undocumented without prior contact with immigration enforcement.
Similarly, findings revealed differences in child internalizing problems associated with parental detention and deportation as reported by parent as well as differences in overall child functioning as reported by clinician. In addition, teachers reported higher externalizing for children with more exposure to PTEs. Trauma-informed assessments and interventions are recommended for this special population. Thomas, K.

Despite relatively low educational attainment, English-speaking Black Caribbean immigrants earn more in the U. This earnings gap may be explained in part by the fact that Caribbean immigrants tend to have been in the United States longer and have greater English-language proficiency.

Black Women’s Identity: Stereotypes, Respectability and Passionlessness ()
Can community and school-based supports improve the achievement of first-generation immigrant children attending high-poverty schools? Child Development, 87 3 , The intervention was designed to help schools identify developmental strengths and barriers to learning and, in turn, connect children to community and school supports aligned with their strengths and needs. By exploiting within-school changes in the implementation of the intervention, the present study revealed statistically and practically significant treatment effects indicating improvements in math and reading achievement at the end of elementary school.
In addition, the intervention appears to considerably narrow achievement gaps between English language learners and immigrant children proficient in English. Nepomnyaschy, L.

That child separation was positively associated with safety perceptions suggests that the processes that facilitate parent-child separation might be reconceptualized as strengths for transnational families.
