Screening Tool: Social challenges including autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
Does your child have troubles getting along with others?
If so, consider filling out this survey, which is designed to see whether or not your child might have signs and symptoms related to conditions such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD). If the test is positive, it does not necessarily mean that your child has a condition such as ASD. It simply means that your child should be seen by a health professional for further assessment.
This survey is the Social Challenges Screening Questionnaire (SCSQ) version 3.1, developed by Dr. Christopher Smith, Southwest Autism Research & Resource Centre. Special thanks to Dr. Smith permission to use this questionnaire!
