Through one-on-one interaction with infants and children, overall developmental status such as language ability, motor ability, perception and imitation ability is evaluated, and daily life adaptation ability is also evaluated through interviews with guardians.
Autism Spectrum Test ADOS & ADI-R, Find the Autism Assessments – Which One is Right For You?
These tools are currently accepted as the most standard and highly reliable diagnostic tools for the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder worldwide and will be used to analyze the improvement of severity by domain even when determining the effectiveness of treatment. Present natural social situations to children and adolescents to directly observe communication and interaction patterns, and evaluate behaviors and developmental status related to autism spectrum disorder by interviewing guardians and test subjects about their developmental process.
The ADOS is a semi-structured diagnostic tool for autism disorder that assesses a child’s communication, social interaction, play, or imagination. Depending on the module, it is a tool that can be used from toddlers to adults and can be applied from completely undeveloped to those who can speak a relatively fluent language.
The ADI-R is a tool for diagnosing pervasive developmental disorders, including childhood autism, through the process of interviewing parents/guardians of children based on ICD-10 and DSM-III-R. Unlike structured interview tools, which are used complementary to ADOS and make a diagnosis based on the presence or absence of abnormal behavior or developmental delay, the interviewer flexibly applies questions according to the interviewer’s clinical judgment and provides more detailed descriptions of behavior. You are asking for a home to get. Scores are given for each item based on the content of the interview, and diagnostic categories are classified according to a diagnostic algorithm.
At our clinic, experts with internationally recognized qualifications perform these tests to help determine the child’s strengths and weaknesses as well as an accurate diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder.
Psychoeducational Profile (PEP)
This test is designed to create a development scale profile in 7 areas and measure pathological scales for children between the ages of 1-12 (mental age 1-5 years). Development scales include imitation, perception, small muscle movement, large muscle movement, hand-eye coordination, language comprehension, and language expression.
American version of the Childhood Autism Rating Scale
It is a developmental test for children and adolescents between the ages of 3 and 21 who are suspected of having an autism disorder. It consists of three subtests: stereotyped behavior, communication, and social interaction, and is one of the most widely used tests. It can be done through child observation, parent interviews, and medical history records. If abnormal behaviors are observed compared to the behaviors of normal children of the same age, the characteristics, frequency, intensity, and duration of these behaviors are compared.
Social Maturity Scale (SMS)
It can be used from birth to adulthood, and the social age and social maturity index can be calculated by evaluating or measuring the child’s social ability, that is, adaptive behavior, which is composed of variables such as self-help, mobility, work, communication, self-management, and socialization. can.
