Description

The specific aims of this study are to: A. Identify specific barriers to participation in biomedical research among Latino families with children with autism and use that knowledge to develop strategies for recruitment of ASD Latino families for genetic research; B. Develop and pilot an intervention for outreach and recruitment of Latino families by training qualified community leaders to serve as research ambassadors; C. Conduct a cost/benefit analysis of the fiscal and programmatic impact of targeted minority inclusion on the broader Center's research program and budget; D. Lay the groundwork for the development of a model that can help bridge the academic community with parents and consumers from minority communities, to better ensure that minorities with disabilities are appropriately represented in biomedical research.
