Course description

We’d like to invite you to join us for the AIT Booster Series Discussion over Best Practices in ASD Identification within Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Populations.  This is not a mandatory meeting.

Disparities in ASD identification, particularly by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic indicators, have been documented for decades. Despite the awareness, reduction of these disparities has been limited. This advanced-level webinar will provide national data pertaining to trends in clinical and educational ASD identification disparities. Participants will gain knowledge pertaining to the potential impact of culture and language on specific ASD identification assessments and promising practices that lead to earlier and more accurate ASD identification in traditionally underserved populations. This presentation is targeted to school-based professionals conducting ASD assessment for educational identification.

Join TASN ATBS trainers and other AIT members as we discuss best practices for culturally and linguistically diverse students with ASD.

Prior to participating in this discussion, participants are expected to watch the Best Practices in ASD Identification within Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Populations Webinar on the TASN ATBS Moodle site.  The discussion will relate specifically to the webinar.
