Minority Children May Miss Autism Diagnosis

In this video, Lee Memorial Health System’s efforts to reach out to minority populations for autism screenings are highlighted, in light of the fact that, on average, diagnoses are made at a later age for those groups. Though the exact reasons for the delay are unclear, Nurse Practitioner Sherri Campbell cites access to care and cultural differences as potential causes.

The importance of the outreach made by the hospital, with free monthly autism screenings, is that early intervention is crucial to achieve better outcomes for autistic individuals.
