OPINION

Re "Latino Group Bridges the Barriers of Autism," July 8: Thank you for your interest in the challenges facing parents of children with autism. With the recent dramatic increase in autism diagnoses, the media can provide a tremendous public service by helping make people aware of the resources available to children and adults with autism. Your article highlighted one of those resources, Grupo de Autismo Angeles. However, as the nonprofit organization contracted by the state of California to coordinate services for Orange County's more than 13,000 people with developmental disabilities, we at Regional Center of Orange County are concerned that this story could leave some Spanish-speaking readers with a sense of hopelessness.
