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.
