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. AnswersNow has dozens of trained clinicians who can provide a much more detailed assessment of your child's behavior to determine if they have signs of autism.

We also remind parents to check with their doctor if they are concerned about their child or suspect that their child has signs of autism.
