Abstract

The purpose of this study was to understand Korean and Korean-American mothers’ perspectives under cultural contexts in regard to the disability itself, family/sibling adjustment to the child with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and the support for those families. From in-depth interview, main themes are discovered that (a) resources & support, (b) sibling relationship, (c) family dynamics, and (d) cultural comparison. Practical implications for serving culturally and linguistically diverse families are discussed, and more future research on culturally and linguistically diverse family dynamics should be conducted.
