Item Type: Monograph (Research Report)
Abstract: Children with autism from black and minority ethnic communities experience discrimination on two fronts – their disability and their ethnicity. This isolates them from the education system that should provide opportunities for success. Some excellent practice exists but, as this report highlights, sadly this is still an exception. The neglect of black and minority ethnic families by researchers, professionals and service providers is unacceptable and must be addressed with urgency.
