Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

Disparities exist regarding ASD diagnosis for Latino children. Findings from narrative interviews exploring how Latino parents and caregivers perceive ASD diagnosis will help illuminate how health information is communicated within this at-risk population and inform the development of future targeted education and intervention programs.
