Autism Spectrum Screening
The Autism Spectrum Quotient helps assess adults with high-functioning autism or Asperger Syndrome (the mildest form on the autism spectrum).
People with a clinical diagnosis tend to score above 32 out of 50 on the AQ, and males in the general population tend to score higher than females.
80% of adults diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders scored 32 or more in the Autism Spectrum Test. However, please note that whilst scores of 32 or more are considered to be indicating clinically significant levels of autistic traits, its authors do not intend this test as a self-diagnosis, and those who obtain high scores should be seeking professional medical advice.
If you feel you may have symptoms of autism or Asperger’s Syndrome, it is recommended that you seek a more thorough assessment and evaluation by a psychiatrist, psychologist, or licensed psychiatric healthcare professional.
