Autism Spectrum Disorder (in Children and Youth)
The ASSQ was designed to assess children aged 7 to 16 years old with normal intelligence to mild mental retardation, and is a screening measure (not a diagnostic measure). Originally developed for Asperger Syndrome, it was later also found suitable for other conditions on the Autism Spectrum.
