ASDetect is a free app that empowers parents to assess their young children for early signs of autism.
ASDetect empowers parents and caregivers to assess the social attention and communication behaviours of their children younger than 2½ years.
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 has been validated as 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. As autism and related conditions can develop over time, the app contains 3 assessments: for children aged 12, 18 and 24 months.
Our developmental early detection program for infants and toddlers is the most effective technique available to professionals to monitor early signs of autism. We are now putting this important resource in the hands of parents and caregivers.
