Are You Concerned About A Child?

See the Online M-CHAT-R Screening Tool:

The Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers, Revised (M-CHAT-R™) is one of the autism screening tools used for children 16 - 30 months of age. The MCHAT was developed by neuropsychologists Diana Robins and Deborah Fein and clinical psychologist Marianne Barton and revised in 2013. 

To learn more about the M-CHAT-R and take an on-line version, see below. The on-line M-CHAT-R evaluation will not diagnose your child, but it can provide information about whether a more comprehensive evaluation by an expert should be undertaken. Even if the M-CHAT-R does not indicate a risk for autism, an evaluation may be recommended if the parent or professional has concerns about autism.

CLICK HERE to link to the on-line M-CHAT-R evaluation tool on the Autism Speaks website.

If further evaluation is recommended, please be aware that in Oregon, there are two different types of assesment: medical and educational. Both should be conducted because they lead to different services.

Please know that if your child is evaluated and found to be on the autism spectrum, this is still the same wonderful child. The Autism Society of Oregon and the caring autism community in Oregon can help you find services and supports to help your child reach his or her full potential. Please see our Autism Action Plan for more information and suggestions.
