2014 CAAI Webinar: Reducing Disparities for People with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Date: May 20, 2014

Disparities in accessing diagnostic and treatment services, access to care based on location, and racial and cultural differences in outcomes exist in our health care service systems. This webinar focused on Combating Autism Act Initiative (CAAI) grantee work in Iowa, Minnesota and Ohio on reducing some of these disparities for individuals on the autism spectrum. The panel of presenters was comprised of research, training and state demonstration grantees. This webinar was part of the 2014 CAAI Virtual Activity Series hosted by AMCHP's SPHARC and AUCD's Interdisciplinary Technical Assistance Center on Autism and Developmental Disabilities (ITAC), in collaboration with HRSA.
