Autism Habla

July 9, 2019

Yuri Maldonado and I speak about her 11 year old son who was diagnosed with autism 8 years ago. The Latinx community is one of the most under-diagnosed communities due to language barriers and health care. Latinx are being tested for autism at a 10 percent rate, many people do not find out they themselves are on The Spectrum until they have children. Services are also determined on a state by state basis. Many Latinx are insured through Medicare which does not always cover the costs of ABA, Applied Behavioral Analysis Therapy.
