The goal of this training initiative is to provide underserved Hispanic and Chinese families of youth with ASD’s with training and information to enable them to advocate effectively and to access services and public systems. Transition planning is critical to maximize the independence, productivity, and inclusion of young adults with ASD’s. However, information and education on services, resources, and programs available to the Autism community is scarce for culturally and linguistically diverse families. The purpose of this initiative is to provide families who primarily speak Spanish or Chinese with culturally and linguistically competent information to help prepare youth for adulthood.
