Research to Explore Experiences of Diverse Families of Children with Autism:
The Experience of Latino Families

The Boggs Center has been awarded funding by The Governor’s Council for Medical Research and Treatment of Autism for research that will explore the experiences of Latino families of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. This qualitative research study, titled Exploring the experiences of diverse families of children newly diagnosed with ASD in New Jersey, focuses on understanding the impact of diagnosis on the family and pathways from diagnosis to linkage with services and interventions. This study builds on the Center’s ongoing work, in collaboration with Children’s Specialized Hospital, to develop and test a new screening tool for autism among children from diverse backgrounds.
