New Resource: Autism Fact Sheet
From Act Early Forum on behalf of Cheryl Rhodes:
USC UCEDD faculty, staff, and trainees have translated the CDC “Learn the Signs. Act Early” Autism Fact Sheet into multiple languages to reach underserved populations in CA. The Autism Fact Sheet is available in Arabic, Armenian, Farsi, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Tagalog, Thai, and Vietnamese from http://uscucedd.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=455&Itemid=426.
The USC UCEDD completed an extensive review process in developing these translations, consulting both parents and health care professionals. The Autism Fact Sheet provides a one-page tool for clinicians to share with families, to raise awareness about developmental delay, which may be related to autism or other developmental disabilities. The fact sheet encourages parents who have concerns about their child’s development to speak with their doctor.
You can also contact Cary Kreutzer, MPH, RD at email@example.com to obtain copies or if you have any questions.
English and Spanish versions of the fact sheet are available from the CDC at http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/actearly/downloads.html.
