Autism Scales - CHAT

April 26, 2013

 

The Checklist for Autism in Toddlers (CHAT) is a highly accurate and elegant autism screening tool for early autism diagnosis. Study findings indicate that CHAT is 85% accurate in diagnosing autism and 100% accurate in diagnosing a developmental delay in general. The CHAT can be used for children aged 18 months or older. It was developed by Professor Simon Baron-Cohen and colleagues.
