Screening and Linkage to Services for Autism (SaLSA): Study of Patient Navigation for Low Income Families

Screening and Linkage to Services for Autism (SaLSA): Study of Patient Navigation for Low Income Families

Tuesday, April 24, 2018
3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. ET
Location: Webinar

Webinar Descriptions:

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is under-diagnosed and under-treated in young children, particularly in disadvantaged populations. Children from minority and low-income populations receive referral, diagnosis and treatment later and less often, and report having less information about how to obtain care, more problems obtaining care, and fewer support services to connect them to care. This webinar will provide an overview of the Screening and Linkage to Services for Autism (SaLSA) study, which aims to evaluate an autism patient navigator program for low income families with young children who screen positive for ASD. Preliminary results of the study, including individual and system barriers to obtaining screening, referral, early intervention evaluation and services will be described.
