MUI partnered with OMBUDS Education of Washington state to develop a video curriculum series “ Rights of Families and children within the Special Education System” in Spanish to help families better navigate, advocate and actively participate with the education of their child. 

This digital animation series is expected to be published by September, 2023.


Barriers to Access

Despite the fact that 27.18% of developmentally disabled children in the U.S. are Hispanic or Latino, very few service delivery and intervention approaches exist to meet the needs of Latinx children and their families (Thomas et al).

Of the service delivery and intervention approaches that do exist, almost all are difficult to access for Latinx families due to limited culturally-tailored resources, a lack of culturally-trained professionals, socio-economic status and legal status. 

These barriers result in late diagnosis for children with neurological disorders, loss of early intervention opportunities and challenging discrepancies between home, medical and educational settings, delaying developmental learning (Casillas et al. 2017; Liptak et al. 2008; Magaña et al. 2013, 2016).
