Disparity Reduction and Equity in Autism Services (DREAmS) Lab

The mission of the Disparity Reduction and Equity in Autism Services (DREAmS) Lab, led by Amber Angell, is to identify, measure, understand and reduce disparities in autism diagnosis and services. The lab’s overarching vision is to eliminate health disparities and achieve health equity for all individuals on the autism spectrum. The lab is composed of a multidisciplinary team of researchers, clinicians, students and volunteers who use a range of health services research methods and designs, including surveys, large data analysis of health records, in-depth qualitative methods and mixed methods approaches. Their research focuses on groups of autistic people who are under-identified with autism, underrepresented in research and underserved by health systems. The lab’s current projects are focusing on autistic girls and women, Latinx autistic children and their families and LGBTQIA+ autistic adults.
