The SRS is a 65-item rating scale that measures the severity of autism spectrum symptoms as they occur in natural social settings.
- Provides a clear picture of a child’s social impairments, assessing social awareness, social information processing, capacity for reciprocal social communication, social anxiety/avoidance, and autistic preoccupations and traits.
- Includes both parent and teacher forms that use the convenient AutoScore™ format.
- Particularly helpful for identifying autism, Asperger’s disorder, pervasive developmental disorder–not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS), and schizoid personality disorder of childhood.
- Provides a quantitative score for autistic social impairment that enables comparisons across settings and against norms established for different raters, making it helpful in qualifying a child for mental health or special education services.
