The Autism Detection in Early Childhood (ADEC) 2nd Edition enables early detection of ASD or autistic tendencies and can enable much-needed support at an early stage of development.
ADEC 2nd Edition is an effective, validated, play-based online screening tool that identifies and details behaviours that can indicate autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autistic tendencies in children aged 12–36 months.
The ADEC can be administered in one of two ways (please note administration of the assessment is not conducted via candidate online response entry):
Upon completion of the screener, administrators will receive an online report outlining the likelihood of ASD in the child screened and the suggested follow-up, including potential further screening and a referral for a more formal diagnosis. This allows for much-needed support at an early stage of development, which is a contributor to successful intervention.
