About This Product
BY SAM GOLDSTEIN, PHD AND JACK A. NAGLIERI, PHD
This new, norm-referenced assessment identifies symptoms and behaviors associated with the full range of autism spectrum disorders. Available in two forms—one for preschoolers, the other for elementary and high school students—the ASRS includes the following treatment scales: Peer Socialization; Adult Socialization; Social/Emotional Reciprocity; Atypical Language; Stereotypy; Behavioral Rigidity; Sensory Sensitivity; Attention/Self-Regulation (ages 6 to 18 only); and Attention (ages 2 to 5 only).
Using a 5-point Likert response scale, parents and teachers indicate how often they observe specific behaviors in the child being evaluated. A 15-item Short Form offers a convenient alternative for screening large groups or monitoring treatment.
The ASRS can guide diagnostic decisions, treatment planning, and response to intervention.
