[Self-Test] Autism Test Child

If your child is getting social and communication Skills slower than their peers, choose this self-test for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and then share the results with a mental health professional for evaluation.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex neurobiological disorder characterized by difficulty communicating verbally and relating socially to others, alongside a need to engage in repetitive behaviors or language. Early symptoms frequently noted by parents include delayed speech, limited interests, not responding to their title, and avoiding eye contact. No two people with ASD will have the very same symptoms. They may be easy to see in 1 individual, and virtually invisible in another.

Take the Self-test below to discover whether your child's symptoms resemble those of children diagnosed with ASD. A high score indicates a trip to a trained healthcare professional for diagnosis.

This Self-test was adapted from the Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers -- Revised (M-CHAT-R) designed to screen the chance of ASD, and from The Childhood Autism Spectrum Test or CAST (previously the"Childhood Asperger's Syndrome Test"), developed by ARC (the Autism Research Centre) at the University of Cambridge, for assessing the severity of autism spectrum symptoms in children. In case you have concerns about potential ASD visit a mental health professional. An accurate diagnosis can only be made through clinical examination. This screener is for personal use only.
