The Autism Spectrum Rating Scales (ASRS) can be used to identify symptoms, behaviours and associated features of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in children from 2-18 years of age.
It is an easy-to-use and convenient tool intended for psychologists, school psychologists, clinical social workers, physicians, counsellors, psychiatric workers and pediatric/psychiatric nurses.
When used in combination with other assessment information, results from the ASRS can help guide clinicians diagnostic decisions, treatment planning, ongoing monitoring of response to intervention, and evaluating the effectiveness of a treatment program for a child with an ASD.
The ASRS is available through the MHS Online Assessment Center. The MHS Online Assessment Center provides professionals the ability to administer, score and generate reports online. It also allows for printing of forms for client completion, and response entry from paper administrations.
