NEWS: Help us evaluate ASDetect for a new research study. Sign-up here.

 

ASDetect is a free app that empowers parents and caregivers to assess the social attention and communication behaviours of their children younger than 2½ years (between 11 and 30 months).

This video-led self-assessment app is based on comprehensive, rigorous, world-class research conducted at the Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre. The research underlying this app is 81% accurate in the early detection of autism and other related developmental conditions.

ASDetect guides parents through each assessment using a combination of videos and questions, as well as activities that you can do with your child. Each assessment will take between 20 and 30 minutes to complete.

Once you have completed an assessment, you receive both an on-screen result of either ‘low’ or ‘high’ likelihood of autism, as well as a comprehensive formal assessment results email.
