Experiences of Families from Middle East, North Africa, and Southwest Asia in the United States

Families of Children with Special Needs Survey

 

Dear Friends,

You are being asked to take part in a research study conducted by Soraya Fallah, CSUN Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, as part of the requirements for the Ed.D. degree. If you choose to participate in this study, you will complete an anonymous survey. This survey will help us learn more about the experiences of families of children with special needs from Middle East, North Africa, and Southwest Asia in the United States. This survey is an opportunity for families like you to share your opinions about your related child’s special education program and personnel. We hope that the knowledge gathered from this survey can help improve special education programs and inform schools on how to best serve Middle Eastern, North African, and Southwest Asian families of children with special needs. The survey will take about 45 minutes to complete.

You are eligible to participate if you are:
  • 18 or older
  • Currently live in the United States
  • Have a child or family member with special needs who is either currently attending school in the United States or has attended school in the United States within the past 10 years.
  • You or your family of origin are from a country, region, ethnic or religious minority group considered to be part of Middle East, North Africa, and Southwest Asia.

Los Angeles, US – The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) needs to engage more with the Kurdish diaspora, especially youth, as Kurds abroad have historically played an important role in advocating internationally for Kurds in the region, the KRG’s representative to the United States said this week. 


Bayan Sami Abdul Rahman spoke at the University of Southern California (USC) on Tuesday at ‘Kurdistan in Perspective,’ organized by a young and impassioned graduate student, Evin Cheikosmon. 

The purpose of the series of talks was to educate students and the public about the KRG, their diplomatic mission, their challenges, achievements, and the future of Kurdistan, said Cheikosmon.

The main event was preceded by a roundtable discussion between Rahman, a number of USC professors of Public Diplomacy and International Relations, and the spokesperson for Olive Tree Initiative, a university-based organization that advocates conflict analysis and resolution through academic discourse, experiential education and leadership development.

The New York Film Academy in Los Angeles hosted the screening of seven short Kurdish films on December 16. This was the first venue in which seven short films were showcased at this prestigious institution. The event was free and open to public and some one hundred people attended. 

The presence of Mr. David Newman, a distinguished professor of the Academy and Khalid Hamalaw, Kurdish film maker, one of whose documentaries, Mrs. Misfortune was shown, and the presence of a diverse engaged audience enhanced the screening. David Newman officially opened the program and invited Amir Sharifi, the president of the Kurdish American Education Society in Los Angeles to provide some background about the Kurdish cinema and the role of Khalid Hamalaw in organizing the venue. 

The audience was encouraged to take note of the fact that the Kurdish society is one of the oldest in the world yet it has one of the youngest cinemas. The selected films - White Mountain (Faqi Ibrahim), Ants' Apartment, (Tofigh Amani), Mrs. Misfortune, (Khalid Hamalaw), Bad Hunter, (Sahim Omar Khalifa), Abandoned Faces, (Ashkan Ahmedi), Human Beings, (Mashallha Muhammadi). 74-Shangal, (Chamani Gull) albeit not atypical represented a very small subsection within the genre of fiction, documentary, and animation.
