Latino Families Struggle to Get Their Children with Autism Properly Diagnosed

A recent study performed in California finds a delay in autism diagnosis for Latino children, a problem one New York family says is widespread. 
When Jesse and Ana Mojica first noticed troubling behavior from their then two-year-old son Adam, they had trouble getting a proper medical diagnosis for his symptoms. "We went to his doctor at the time, and we expressed our concern that Adam was having trouble with eating, he wasn't smiling, and the doctor responded to us, 'You're a nervous father,'" says Jesse Mojica.
