Autism test online

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior.

People with ASD have:

  • Difficulty with communication and interaction with other people
  • Restricted interests and repetitive behaviors
  • Symptoms that hurt the person’s ability to function properly in school, work, and other areas of life
The adult AQ (Autism Quotient) was developed because of a lack of a quick and quantitative self-report instrument for assessing how many autistic traits any adult has. The AQ has been found to be strongly predictive of who receives a diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorder.
