Purpose: Identify symptoms, behaviours and associated features of Autism Spectrum Disorders in children
Age Range: 2-18 years
Time: 20 minutes
Format: Online

The ASRS was designed to effectively identify symptoms, behaviours, and associated features of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) in children and adolescents aged 2 through 18 years of age.
This innovative instrument, authored by the highly respected Sam Goldstein, Ph.D., and Jack A. Naglieri, Ph.D., is a norm-referenced assessment based on a large nationally representative sample, designed to identify symptoms, behaviours and associated features of the full range of Autism Spectrum Disorders. This tool aids in differential diagnosis among the disorders that make up the Autism Spectrum.

Generate up to three user-friendly reports

  1. Assessment/Interpretive Report: provide numerical and graphical information about a single administration including the individual’s scores, how the scores compare to others and which scales are elevated.
  2. Progress Report: combine the results of up to four administrations by the same rater to summarise important changes in reported behaviour over time.
  3. Comparative report: combine the results of up to five raters to provide an overview of symptom status from a multi-rater perspective, and highlights potentially important inter-rater differences in scores.

The ASRS can now be administered, scored and reports generated online.

There are three options for online administration:

  1. In person with the client while online
  2. Send a link via email to the client to complete the assessment form online.
  3. Print the form for paper-and-pencil administration and then enter the responses into the online system to generate the report.
