Bradbury K, Robins DL, Barton M, Ibañez LV, Stone WL, Warren ZE, Fein D. Screening for Autism Spectrum Disorder in High-Risk Younger Siblings. Journal of developmental and behavioral pediatrics : JDBP. 2020 Jun 17. PMID: 32576788 [PubMed]
Most autism spectrum disorder (ASD) screening measures have been developed for use with low-risk (LR) children; however, measures may perform differently in high-risk (HR) younger sibling populations. The current study sought to investigate the performance of an ASD screening measure, the Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers, Revised with Follow-Up (M-CHAT-R/F), in a sample of HR younger siblings and directly compared its performance with that in an LR sample.
