Free Webinar:  Empowering Latina Mothers of Children with ASD

Parents Taking Action: Empowering Latina Mothers of Children with ASD

Thursday, April 21, 2016
3:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Latinos represent the fastest growing population in the US, and Latino children are one of the fastest growing ASD populations. Despite this growth, they are one of the most underserved groups with respect to diagnostic services, health care, and specialty autism services. Dr. Sandy Magaña will discuss the development of a culturally-based approach to addressing informational needs of Latino parents, which is essential in order to better support their children with ASD. She will present preliminary findings of a randomized controlled trial that is underway to evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed model.

Registration is free and required.
