Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Autism Diagnosis and Educational Therapy Utilization: Quantifying the Contribution of Modifiable Mediators

Project: Research project

Project Details


The overarching aim of our proposed study is to advance understanding of the composition of racial and ethnic disparities in autism diagnosis and treatment among children using the framework and methods put forth in the Institute of Medicine’s 2003 report Unequal Treatment. Our target population is children with ASD insured through the Medicaid program in state fiscal year 2013. Through the proposed study we will be able to answer the question, to what extent does geography contribute to racial and ethnic disparities in autism diagnosis and treatment?
