Description

Description

The proposed project will determine the applicability, reliability, and validity of the newly revised computer-adaptive version of the Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory, called the PEDI-CAT, for children and youth with ASD. The PEDI-CAT (ASD) instrument will provide a brief and precise assessment of daily function, which may greatly improve the quality of information obtained on the adaptive behavior of children and youth with ASD. This new instrument will enable more sensitive tracking of change in this critical outcome across childhood and adolescence as well as examination of the relation between variations in core symptoms and functional outcomes in this population.
