The screening below is designed to identify signs of autism in children aged 16 to 30 months. Please note that this is only meant to function as a quick screener, not a formal assessment or diagnosis. Formal testing is needed to diagnose autism. Read more about Diagnosing Autism.
The screener can help parents identify next steps and interventions at an early age. For example, early support through ABA Therapy is one of the most effective ways to improve long-term outcomes in young children diagnosed with autism.
Screener results will be either Low, Medium, or High Risk. Each level provides a brief recommendation on suggested next steps for assessment. However, if the screener leaves you with more questions than answers, you are more than welcome to reach out to the team at Westside. As another resource, you may find Westside’s “What is Autism?” page to be helpful, too.
