About the Autism Screening Tool
It is important to note that the questions and the results of the tool are for informational purposes only. The results are intended for guidance purposes only and do not constitute a diagnosis. It is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. We strongly recommend you raise any concerns you have about your child’s development with their pediatrician (and educational placement as applicable).
How to Use the Autism Screening Tool
You will be presented with a series of questions about your child's behavior. Answer each question to the best of your ability. If you are not entirely sure on a question, that's okay, just give it your best guess.
At the end of the questionnaire, we'll show you your results and give a short explanation of what the calculated score means.
I Got My Results, Now What?
Just to reiterate, the autism screening tool is for informational purposes only and is not a medical diagnosis. However, based on your answers, we will suggest a few different actions. If necessary, we may suggest bringing the results to your pediatrician for a more in-depth conversation. After speaking with your doctor, if your child is diagnosed with autism, we are here for you.
