Study: Autism in the Hispanic community
Research Assistant:  Angela Giraldo
This study is aimed at exploring how Hispanic immigrant families understand and support the needs of their children with autism spectrum disorders.  We provide comprehensive parent training, including in depth interviews to understand parents’ concerns, home-visits to analyze the communication environment, individualized and group training in specific strategies to support the acquisition of communication skills.
Este estudio explora como las familias Latinas comprenden y apoyan las necesidades de sus niños con autismo.  Ofrecemos entrenamiento de madres/padres, incluyendo entrevistas para comprender preocupaciones de la familia, visitas a la casa para analizar el ambiente comunicativo, entrenamiento individual o en grupo sobre estrategias específicas para desarrollar la adquisición de habilidades comunicativas.
We are currently recruiting families.  If interested in participating, contact Dr. Ijalba.
