Abstract

Autism, also known as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has not only been puzzling for parents but for professionals as well. Although ASD affects all races, economic and social classes, and genders, many research studies have shown that ASD is not represented fairly among all races, ethnicities and socioeconomic groups. Multiple research studies have shown the importance of early intervention for children diagnosed with ASD. Research has also found that minority children with ASD are diagnosed at a later age. Very little research has been done among Southeast Asian communities, especially Hmong communities.
