Abstract

Latino children on the autism spectrum experience less access to autism services and more barriers to service-use than non-Latino White children. Yet, existing research leaves unanswered questions about how cultural, family, and service system-level processes contribute to autism service-use disparities. This study aimed to qualitatively explore how Latina and non-Latina mothers experience similar encounters with autism services. Twenty Latina and non-Latina mothers completed semi-structured interviews regarding their experiences accessing services. Data were analyzed using applied thematic analysis. Ethnicity-based differences emerged in mothers’ service-use motivations (i.e., desiring ongoing support vs. eventual departure), service evaluations (i.e., dissatisfaction vs. satisfaction), and service-seeking approaches (i.e., proactive vs. reactive). Findings illustrate how these processes underlying service engagement may contribute to service disparities for Latino children.

The term, “individuals on the autism spectrum” is used throughout as a middle ground between the person-first language recommended by the APA style guide and the identity-first language preferred by autistic self-advocates (Kenny et al., 2016).
