Dababnah & Team Release Report on Asian American Families of Children with Dev. Disabilities

Associate Professor Sarah Dababnah, Assistant Professor Irang Kim (Tulane University) and Doctoral Student Yao Wang recently released the results of a needs assessment of Maryland Asian American families of children with developmental disabilities. There is little known about Asian American children with developmental disabilities nationally, as well as specifically in Maryland. With the support of the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Council, the University of Maryland School of Social Work, and an expert advisory board of national leaders on developmental disability research, the research team distributed surveys to families across Maryland in five languages: English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese. The full-length report, a six-page research and practice brief aimed at providers and other stakeholders, and a one-page summary of the results for caregivers and other advocates are available on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/MarylandAANS/ and Dr. Dababnah's faculty page https://www.ssw.umaryland.edu/academics/faculty/sarah-dababnah/.


The one-page summary is available in 15 languages (Bengali, Burmese, Chinese [simplified and traditional], English, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Nepali, Tagalog, Tamil, Thai, Urdu and Vietnamese).
