If you think your child may have autism, take the the Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers (M-CHAT™), it may be able to help. The M-CHAT™ is a scientifically validated tool for screening children between 16 and 30 months of age to assess their risk for autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It was developed by neuropsychologists Diana Robins and Deborah Fein and clinical psychologist Marianne Barton.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that all children receive autism screening at 18 and 24 months of age, and the M-CHAT™ is one of the AAP’s recommended tools.
