by Izurieta, Maite, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 73; 1527958
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to obtain funding for educational workshops. The workshops are about how to access community-based resources, navigate the service delivery systems and training on advocacy skills needed to access appropriate services. Targeted population will include 192 Latino parents and families of children with autism spectrum disorder or suspected developmental delays. The proposed program would be offered in the Family Resource Center at the Los Angeles Child Guidance Clinic.

The educational workshops aim to increase the utilization of services of Latino parents who are economically disadvantaged and underserved, through the distribution of information of community resources available for the specific needs of their children. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
