M-Chat - Autism "test"


Hi,

I just wanted to post this link for an M-Chat test I found. It's more detailed than the M-Chat tests I was normally coming across on the internet so I thought some Mums on here who are worried may find it helpful. I know that only a thorough exam by multiple doctors/ therapists can provide a true diagnosis but I did find this helpful (especially as here in Canada it can take a long time to get a true diagnosis).

Anyway, I just thought I'd post it in case it can help some worried Mums find a (possible) answer.

Result: Risk for Autism


The results of this screening suggest that there are some areas in which your child may not be developing like other children his/her age group. It is recommended that you make an appointment with your primary care Physician to review your child's M-CHAT findings and/or have a complete developmental assessment at your local Early Intervention Center.


My daughter was diagnosed already (age 2, she is now 6) but just wanted to see what it would say based on todays answers. Guess she still has it!

I went through it with my baby, and she is 'low risk' I knew she didn't have autism because she can already do things that Makena has never done, but it was nice to see it in writing...so thanks again for posting this...it has eased my mind.

We already have autism diagnosis too. Was just interested.

We don't have Luke's appointment until November to see the Developmental Pediatrician and to be assessed. But, I figured this would be the outcome of the questions. We'll just have to wait and see.

Andrew came out as "Risk for Autism" too ... but many of his risk areas could be caused by his delayed development and/or his hearing problems.

I sometimes manipulate the test. If I'm having a positive day then my answers reflect that, if it's a particularly bad day, my answers reflect that too. Sometimes the answers don't seem clearcut, they fall somewhere between Yes and No.

That could be because your baby is quite young still.
