B2-A: Lived Experiences of Black Parents Through the ASD Identification Process

Two phenomenological studies to better understand the under-identification, misidentification and delayed identification of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in Black children. The researchers will share their findings and provide recommendations to Black parents, pediatricians, educators, evaluators, and community providers to better identify Black children with ASD and support parents through the ASD identification process.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. The participants will increase awareness of the problem of under-identification, delayed identification and misidentification of Black children in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and how it occurs.
  2. The participants will be able to identify the barriers and facilitators for ASD identification for Black children.
  3. Participants will be able to develop actionable strategies for supporting Black parents through the ASD Identification process.
