    Default Autism tests

    So I found a modified test for toddlers and I'm wondering if it's worth bringing with me to the paed this month as well as a letter from childcare outlining DD1's behaviours.

    It's the M-CHAT-R. She scored a 7. 0-2 is nothing, 2-7 is moderate and 8-20 is high. Some questions it would depend on interpretation and she could score a 8 or 9.

    Thoughts?

    I would take it with you, as well as the letter from childcare. The more info the better.

    I would also list some of your own observations of behaviours (in point form), and perhaps film some of her behaviours/traits on your phone so you can show the paed some footage.

    When we saw the Paed yesterday for DS I took a development assessment/checklist that daycare had done and some videos that they'd taken. We also told the Paed everything we had observed and he asked us a bunch of questions. The more you take with you the better.

    As the ladies have said, all information is good information and anything you can list as examples will help.
    Everything we brought to our Paed helped his own little questionnaire get some clear answers.

    Ohhh I hadn't thought of videoing her. I already have a good list as does her educators. I see exactly what she's like for them.

    I would take it.
    I took the test for my 2 yr old and it gave me the result I thought it would, at risk it said.
    Half of her siblings have asd and she has some quirks.
    It would be a help I would think because often you forget things you want to discuss at appointments.
