Description

Description

Strategies will be identified to build effective partnerships between scientists and the Latino community. The University of Southern California University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD) has identified one of its long-time collaborators, Fiesta Educativa, as the Community Partner in this effort. Fiesta Educativa is the California chapter of the larger national organization, whose mission is to provide culturally sensitive education and advocacy services to Spanish-speaking families of children with disabilities, including a rapidly growing number of families of children with autism. Fiesta plans to use the majority of its sub-award to identify and convene beneficiaries of the Center's research and key community informants to develop the strategies which are most likely to be effective in building the scientist/community partnership.
