Abstract

Date Presented 4/9/2016

We present the implementation and evaluation of a family-centered, participation-oriented intervention for Latino immigrant families with preschool age children with autism spectrum disorder. Our presentation holds lessons for individual practitioners, and the occupational therapy field, to work with diverse, underserved groups.
