Join us today for a conversation with Arianne Garcia and Dr. Kristina Lopez about autism in the Latino community.
This is part one of a two-part episode. Be sure to subscribe to Mom Autism Money on Spotify, Apple Podcasts or Google Podcasts so you won't miss part two when it drops next Tuesday.
Today, we'll be talking primarily about Autism diagnoses in the Latino community, and the systemic obstacles that prevent people from accessing services to which they have a right. We'll talk about Bruno, learn about how Arianne's diagnosis and example changed her community, and learn about culturally-informed interventions Dr. Lopez is pioneering around the country with her peers.
