The Autism Spectrum Rating Scales is used to quantify observations of young children and youth that are associated with the Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). When used in combination with other information, results from the ASRS can helpdetermine the likelihood that a youth has symptoms associated with the Autism Spectrum Disorders; this information can then be used to determine treatment targets.
There are three report types for all ASRS forms.
Interpretive Reports are comprehensive and present scores numerically and graphically.
Progress Monitoring Reports compare the results of two to four administrations from the same rater to measure changes over time. These reports are ideal when monitoring treatment and intervention.
Comparative Reports allow for a multi-rater perspective by comparing results of up to five different raters.
The ASRS was standardized on 2,560 cases from across the United States. The standardization includes 640 cases for the ASRS (2-5 years), with 320 parent and 320 teacher forms. Additionally, it included 1,920 cases for the ASRS (6-18 years), with 960 parent and 960 teacher forms. Over 1,200 clinical cases were also collected. The disorders in the clinical sample include:
