New videos, titled “On the Autism Spectrum: Families Find Help and Hope,” are now available on the Department of Human Services (DHS) YouTube page. The videos are intended to provide support and raise awareness of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and available treatments among the African American, American Indian, Hmong, Latino and Somali communities. 

The videos feature Minnesotans from these communities talking about their experiences with ASD and resources they found in Minnesota to help. Click on the links below to see each of the videos.

The videos were funded by DHS and produced in partnership with the Institute on Community Integration at the University of Minnesota. These videos may be used as learning tools for individuals and families as well as lead agency workers, providers and other stakeholders.
