Kessler-Freedheim Lecture: Disparities in the diagnosis and care of children with autism Tue. February 26th, 2019
11:30 am-1:00 pm
at Ballroom A, Tinkham Veale University Center
Add to Google Calendar

Almost two decades of research demonstrates that autism is diagnosed later in children of color than white children, and that service experiences and outcomes often are worse as well.  Dr. David Mandell, Kenneth E. Appel Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, will review these disparities and how they have changed (or not over time), discuss the causes of these disparities, and offer some policy and practice solutions to ameliorate them.
