Disparities in access to autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosis and services are well documented. In order to impact disparities, it is essential to have accurate knowledge of barriers and enablers to access faced by families. This poster describes methods used to engage diverse families in informing systems change in Wisconsin. Original data is reported from family surveys, listening sessions, and key stakeholder input collected through a quality improvement project.
