Cultural equivalence of autism assessment for Latino children

Description

Description

The proposed study will provide a body of data from which significant future research on Latinos (including those who are Spanish speaking) with an autism spectrum disorder may be built by examining the cultural equivalence of the Autism Diagnostic Interview Revised (ADI-R), one of the most widely accepted autism diagnostic instruments. Such data are particularly relevant as Latinos are the fastest growing minority group in the U.S. and have been underrepresented in autism diagnosis and services.
