Highlighting Efforts to Support Underrepresented Families of Children with Autism through a Community-Engaged Program

We know that early identification of autism is crucial, as it enables children to access and participate in evidence-based interventions and services that, in turn, have been linked to improved long-term outcomes (Bruder, 2010; Irvin et al., 2012). African American and Latino children, however, are less likely to be diagnosed with autism than European American children (CDC, 2016) and are more likely to be misdiagnosed or go unidentified years after the onset of symptoms (Hilton et al., 2010; Mandell et al., 2009). In an effort to address disparities in access to services and supports for underrepresented families of children with autism, Dr. Jamie Pearson developed and piloted the FACES (Fostering Advocacy, Communication, Empowerment, and Supports) parent training program.
