ICI's Amy Hewitt talks to VICE News author Carolin Modarressy-Tehrani about the data from the 2013 Minneapolis Somali Autism Spectrum Disorder Prevalence Project: Prevalence Report. 

“The findings of the study got misrepresented in headlines and news bites,” Hewitt told VICE News via phone. “It is correct to say that autism hits the Somali community very hard and there’s a high rate of prevalence. Where it starts to become inaccurate is when people say it’s a ‘higher’ rate or the ‘highest’ rate.”
