by Rios, Jennifer, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 65; 1586515
Abstract (Summary)

Latino parents of youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experience numerous challenges when seeking services for their children including lack of support from medical providers, lack of knowledge on autism services, and cultural barriers that impede them from appropriately advocating for them. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to develop a support program for low-income Latino parents of youth with ASD in Inglewood, California. The goal of the program is to increase awareness of ASD and improve access to services through various educational workshops for these parents. Subsequently, Latino parents of youth with ASD will be equipped with the skills needed to be a more effective advocate for their adolescents. The actual submission of this grant program was not required for the completion of the project.
