LASALLIAN DIMENSIONS OF POVERTY EXPLAINED

Economic: Refers to the lack of basic financial resources needed for a family to function at the average level of other families in the community.  For the United States specific guidelines are provided by the Department of Health and Human resources as to what constitutes economic poverty and low income.

 

Educational: Refers to significant differences in cognitive style or development, past school history, or social/emotional developments that significantly impede a person being able to function in the regular learning environments without supports or accommodations.

 

Affective: Refers to a significant lack of the personal, psychological, social and emotional resources and competencies to be able to meet normal development expectations.  Poverty in this area can lead to lifelong emotional and social maladjustment impeding the person from being a contributing member of the community.

 

Poverty of Values: Refers to lacks in an appreciation of local social norms, spirituality, or of the responsibility to the larger world community that all persons have.
