I am conducting research through QUT that aims to establish the utility of an Autism Specific instrument (Autistic Behavioural Indicators Instrument – ABII; Ward & Gilmore, 2010) in detecting young children with Autism and to investigate current diagnostic practices amongst health care professionals who are involved in the early assessment and diagnosis of young children with ASD.

It is hoped that this research will help to facilitate earlier identification and diagnosis of ASD, and in doing so, allow for earlier entry into intervention programs and improve developmental outcomes for children with ASD.

I am beginning recruitment and am looking for participants and help from anyone who would be willing to either be involved in the research or help distribute information about the research to potential participants.

Who is needed?
Study 1: Children 11-­48 months whose parents have concerns regarding their development
Study 2: Children aged 2-­12 years who have a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder.
Study 3: Paediatricians, Psychiatrists and Psychologists currently working nationwide, who see new paediatric patients for the differential diagnosis of ASD.

What does participation involve?
Undergoing Autism screening tools and parent report forms.
Study 1: 2 visits to a clinic over a 6 month period
Study 2: 1 visit to a clinic
Study 3: Completion of an anonymous online or hard copy practitioner questionnaire.
