Study Assesses Pediatricians’ Role in Delayed Autism Diagnosis among Latinos
August 19, 2013
A survey of pediatricians suggests that language barriers in the doctor’s office and a lack of culturally appropriate awareness materials contribute to a lag in early diagnosis of autism among Latino families.

The new study investigated the potential role that pediatricians play in this gap. The report appears in the journal Pediatrics.
