Description

This original research examines reasons for lower prevalence of neurodevelopmental disabilities (NDD) among Hispanic/Latino (H/L) children as compared to white children using a large nationally representative data set. Findings reveal that while H/Ls born in the U.S. have lower rates of NDD than whites, H/Ls who were not born in the U.S. have even lower probability of NDD than H/Ls who were born in the U.S.
