Disseminating scientific information on autism to the Latino community  

This project focuses on translating scientific information on autism spectrum disorders into everyday language so that Latino families can understand and utilize scientific discoveries in their health decision-making process. This research is done in partnership with Fiesta Educativa, a community-based education, advocacy, and support organizing serving Latino families who have children with disabilities. The most effective strategies to translate scientific information about autism research and bring it into the hands of consumers, Latino families, will be developed and studied. The long term goal is to develop a model for academic institutions nationwide. Project Status
