Autism Not Diagnosed As Early

| No Comments

This article was about how minority children tend to be diagnosed for autism later than white children. The reasons why diagnosis are not being made early for minority children are stemmed from different reasons. The author says in preliminary research that "minority youngsters have more severe developmental delays than their white counterparts [and] how parents view developmental milestones... might play a role".

The article I feel used a lot of pathos, and used emotional appeals when they talked about mothers, grandmothers and other family members missing the signs or early autism due to cultural differences. To me it made it seem like, as a parent you might think you are attentive to your children, but if you want to diagnose the autism early you much become more attentive and question things that might be signs. Who wouldn't want early diagnosis if their child had autism.
