#16: Disparities in Supports for Autism in Latino Families with Cristina Reyes Smith & Catherine Hoyt (CE Course)
Manage episode 302139493 series 2573061
Racial and ethnic health disparities have been heavy on our hearts over the past few years—and they should be.
We have much to reckon with, not only in terms of our own personal biases, but also regarding the structural inequities within healthcare.
In this one-hour, podcast-based CE course, we’ll look at how the Latino community is impacted by disparities around the diagnosis and care of autistic children. We’ll start by exploring some of the latest research on the topic with Catherine R. Hoyt, PhD, OTD, OTR/L and Cristina Reyes Smith, OTD, OTR/L. Then, we’ll discuss practical implications for caring for our autistic clients, including how we can work step-by-step to dismantle the disparities in our healthcare systems.
