As Canadian cities become increasingly culturally diverse, one size does not always fit all when it comes to supporting healthy child development. Health care systems and providers need to respond to varied perspectives, values and behaviors connected to health and well-being. Failure to understand and manage social and cultural differences may have significant health consequences for minority groups in particular.
SAAAC’s inaugural conference Culture Counts – Culturally Responsive Autism Support in Research and Practices will engage with the timely issue of autism and demonstrate how to provide effective ASD support to a rapidly changing population.
The event will provide you with a space to connect with families, researchers, health professionals, advocates and community agencies to better understand ASD as it relates to minority communities and the challenges faced by under-served communities.
