Description: Heterogeneity in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has long been recognized. There is increasing evidence that ASD’s are often diagnosed several years after the onset of symptoms. This pattern of delayed and sometimes missed ASD diagnosis may be exacerbated among medically underserved racial and ethnic minorities. The Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee’s 2009 Strategic Plan for research opportunities has identified improved screening and assessment as part of their research “opportunities”. The strategic plan documents that need to identify “sensitive and efficient clinical diagnostic tools for diagnosing ASD in widely diverse populations, including underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, females, younger and older age groups”. In response to this gap in research, this symposium will bring together experts in the field of ASD to discuss assessment with particular emphasis on children of diverse backgrounds. The NIH Autism Coordinating Committee was consulted on this workshop and as a result a trans-NIH planning committee was developed for this meeting/workshop.
