Hello, I am the father of a girl with autism. This application was made by me to help other parents of children with ASD and professionals dealing with autistic children.
The application is based on the ATEC test from the American Autism Research Institute. It is designed for children from 5 to 12 years.
But you can pass the test for children 3-4 years old before visiting a doctor and getting an official diagnosis to dispel or confirm your fears.
If a child is younger than 3 years old, the test is strictly irrelevant.
For children from one and a half to three years, use the quick test M-CHAT-R: https://www.autismspeaks.org/screen-your-child
How does the test work?
The test is used to assess the dynamics of improvements in children with autism or also for initial testing of children who may have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Basically, the lower the score, the fewer the problems.
Thus, if a person scores a ’20’ on one day, and then a ’15’ two weeks later, then the individual showed improvement. In contrast, if the score was ’30’, then the individual’s behavior worsened.
For more correct scores, it is better if different people in contact with the child take the test. For example, if on the same day dad, mom, and specialist in the rehabilitation center give different answers, you will get a different number of points. The application will calculate the average score on that day and show it on the chart.
The ATEC test is not a medical diagnostic test!
The application is not intended to set the diagnosis. It basically provides several subscale scores as well as a total score to be used for comparison at a later date.
If you have scored more than 30 points, you should contact a specialist to make a survey and precise diagnosis.
