Joining us this week is Dr. Adrianne DaSilva, a clinician and psychologist at Sound Mental Health.
Sound Mental Health is a non profit that has been working to strengthen our community and improve the lives of their clients by delivering excellent health and human services tailored to meet their specific needs, including addiction recovery, and mental health counseling.
With April being Autism Awareness Month we hear from Dr. DaSilva about racial and ethnic disparities in Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis.
The reasons for this are complex, sadly. But research is bearing out the fact that there are disparities. Given the impact a delayed or inaccurate diagnosis has on the lives of children and their families, this is an important topic as the rate of those with autism continues to increase.
