The Color of Autism Foundation is the Michigan’s only nonprofit autism organization, dedicated to advocacy, awareness and knowledge among Black parents, connecting families across the country to local services, and providing one-to-one support. African American children frequently go undiagnosed or are misdiagnosed. Part of the issue is access to services and the other is the stigma of having a developmental disability in the African American community. Unfortunately, these factors have caused many African Americans with autism to end up in the criminal justice system.
