Little is known about how families from different racial and ethnic backgrounds report family impact associated with caregiving children with autism. We examined family impact variables among caregivers from different racial and ethnic backgrounds from the National Survey of Children with Special Healthcare Needs (n=5,178) and found significant differences on financial spending and time spent caregiving. These differences may impact providers' work to engage in culturally relevant therapy.
