The Autism Spectrum Rating Scale (ASRS) is the first nationally-standardized, norm-referenced instrument to effectively identify symptoms, behaviors, and associated features of Autism Spectrum Disorders in children and adolescents ages 2 through 18. Using a five-point Likert rating scale, parents, teachers, and caregivers are asked to evaluate how often they observed specific behaviors in the child or adolescent in areas such as socialization, communication, unusla behaviors, behavioral rigidity, sensory sensitivity, and self-regulation.
It is an easy-to-use assessment intended for psychologists, school psychologists, clinical social workers, physicians, counselors, psychiatric workers, and pediatric/psychiatric nurses. The ASRS was normed on a diverse sample of 2,560 individuals across the United States, between October, 2006 and October, 2008.
The ASRS includes a Total Score, a DSM-5 Scale, ASRS Scales, and Treatment Scales. The comprehensive scales are:
