The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal for the design and implementation of a resource support program that would serve as extra support for low- income Latino parents of newly diagnosed preschoolers. Parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) face multiple challenges. These challenges include limited access to screenings for ASD, language barriers, lack of information, awareness, community support, and resources due to low social economic status and mental health issues. The major components of the proposed program are to provide outreach, psycho education, and link parents to resources in the community. Santa Ana Unified School District's Mitchell Child Development Center which is located in the city of Santa Ana, California will be the host agency. The actual submission and/or funding for this grant were not requirements for the successful completion of this project.
