Description

The ASRS was designed to effectively identify symptoms, behaviours, and associated features of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) in children and adolescents aged 2 to 18.

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 nationally representative sample, designed to identify symptoms, behaviors, and associated features of the full range of Autism Spectrum Disorders.

The ASRS scale is an easy-to-use and convenient tool intended for psychologists, school psychologists, clinical social workers, physicians, counselors, psychiatric workers, and pediatric/psychiatric nurses.

The ASRS will assist you in the diagnostic process. ASRS items assess DSM-IV-TR™ symptom criteria for ASDs. When used in combination with other assessment information, results from the ASRS can help guide your diagnostic decisions, treatment planning, ongoing monitoring of response to intervention, and evaluating the effectiveness of a treatment program for a child with an ASD.

 

ASRS Scoring Update for Individuals Who Do Not Speak or Speak Infrequently

There has been a scoring update to the ASRS for individuals who do not speak or speak infrequently.

You can now chose one of the following scoring options when using Scoring Software or the MHS Online Assessment Center:

  1. The standard scoring method which can be continued to be used for the individual with limited speech.
  2. An alternative scoring method is now available for individuals who do not speak or speak infrequently.

Further details about the alreanative scoring method can be found by downloading the ASRS Technical Report #1.



How to Use the Assessment

Using a five-point Likert rating scale, parents and teachers are asked to evaluate how often they observed specific behaviours in the child or adolescent in areas such as socialisation, communication, unusual behaviours, behavioural rigidity, sensory sensitivity, and self-regulation. 

You can choose between two versions: ASRS (2–5 Years) for ratings of children aged 2 to 5 and ASRS (6–18 Years) for ratings of children or adolescents aged 6 to 18. The ASRS can be easily and quickly completed and scored automatically with the ASRS online from any Internet connection. The ASRS can also be scored using the ASRS Scoring Software simply be entering responses from a completed paper-and-pencil administration into the software (ratings from paper-and pencil forms can also be scored online). Paper-and-pencil administrations on ASRS Quikscore forms can be scored by hand.

There is also a 15-item ASRS Short form available. The ASRS Short form provides an efficient way to screen large numbers of children for possible ASD and can be used for monitoring treatment progress.
