ASD and Culture Study

The Parent Perceptions and Language Abilities of Children with ASD from a Cultural Standpoint Study focuses on issues related to cultural diversity and their impact on ethnic and racial minority families who have children diagnosed with ASD. We are particularly interested in exploring the significance of immigration, bilingualism, and cultural background on the language abilities of children with ASD. This study is specifically focusing on South Asian families, an understudied population, who reside in the United States and have children, between the ages of four and sixteen, diagnosed with ASD.
