Abstract

There is a lack of research examining differences in functioning in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) across ethnicity, particularly among those without intellectual disability (ID). This study investigated ethnic differences in parent-reported impairment in executive function, adaptive behavior, and social–emotional functioning. White and Black youth (n = 64; ages 6–17) with ASD without ID were compared on each of these domains. Black youth had significantly lower levels of impairment on all three domains. Findings may reflect better daily functioning among Black youth with ASD and/or cultural differences in parent response to questionnaires. Regardless, these findings raise concern about the sensitivity of commonly used measures for Black children with ASD and the impact of culture on daily functioning and symptom manifestation.

Race/ethnicity were identified by parent selection from among the following categories: American Indian/Alaska Native; Asian American; Black or African American; Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander; White; Other. Families then identified as Hispanic or Latino versus Not Hispanic or Latino. Self-report is the widely preferred approach to obtaining race and ethnicity data and is considered to be the “gold standard” (Higgins and Taylor 2009; Wei et al. 2006). We acknowledge that these categories may be not sufficiently descriptive to distinguish among locally relevant ethnic populations.
