Title Raising autism awareness by providing information in a Spanish alternative
Creator Valdez, Tony
Subject Autism awareness - Hispanic community
Description After the diagnosis of my nephews with autism, I became interested in the underlying factors behind this disease. Studies show that early preventive programs can help curb the negative effects of autism and in some cases, cure it. My integrated service project was centered on raising autism awareness within the Hispanic community by providing literature available in a Spanish alternative in the form of pamphlets. These pamphlets were then subsequently distributed to various pediatrician offices across the Salt Lake Valley. I was also able to partner with the Pingree School for Children with Autism and perform a translation of all forms and medical documents from English to Spanish. By creating tangible documents that were left behind for the Pingree institution, long term impact was accomplished. Moreover, this project has helped me improve my communication and leadership skills.
