ONGOING: Paid Family and Medical Leave and Disability Study.  The goal of the study is to look at how workers with disabilities and families that include people with disabilities use, need, and can benefit from paid family and medical leave programs. These are programs that allow people to take time off from work and receive full or partial pay to welcome a new child or new baby, to address their own serious medical condition, or to care for a family member experiencing a serious medical condition. The study will involve an initial screening call or email, and, if eligible, an interview by video conferencing or phone that will take approximately 40 minutes. Participants who complete the interview will receive a $20 gift card in thanks. For full details, please visit their website. 

ONGOING: Now recruiting research participants! Do you have a young child who was recently diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder? Are you interested in receiving information and educational materials for caregivers about autism and the service system? You may be eligible to participate in a research study done by UCLA. For more information, please view their Korean and English flyer here.

DECEMBER 7: UCLA's Center for Autism Research & Treatment presents a FREE lecture series with Alison Singer: “Autism From Generation to Generation." Ms. Singer will discuss how families’ experiences with autism have changed from the 1960’s to the present.  She will also describe the different cultural climate her older brother faced when he was diagnosed in 1968 compared to her daughter’s experience being diagnosed in 2000.  Over the past five decades individuals with autism have gained important rights and protections, but these improvements can quickly erode without continued family advocacy.
