With the aim of reaching Spanish-speaking families throughout the world, Autism Speaks recently partnered with the Carlos Slim Foundation (CSF) for the translation of many of its free, online tools and resources into Spanish. The CSF is a philanthropic organization based in Mexico with a mission of improving global health for some of the worldʼs most vulnerable populations. CSF will be working with families and experts in Mexico during the translation process to ensure that the materials are accurate and culturally appropriate. Among the materials that will be translated are over 40 Autism Speaks tool kits, which cover a broad range of topics relevant to families and providers, including the 100 Day Kit, a guide for parents of recently diagnosed children, as well as materials on ASD treatments, advocacy, and managing behavioral challenges. These Spanish-language tool kits will start becoming available to the public later this year!
