This study estimates the sensitivity and specificity of the social communication questionnaire (SCQ) for autistic spectrum disorders in preschool children at high risk for developmental problems referred to a tertiary centre and compares the predictions of the SCQ and the. Purpose of Review The Social Communication Questionnaire (SCQ) is a screener for Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) validated for age +. There is a clinical need for an ASD screener for children beyond the month age limit of the M-CHAT-R/F. Recent Findings Recent studies have. autism IDEA eligibility classification (U.S. Department of. Education, ). .. 37 . Modified Checklist for Autism in. Toddlers musicmarkup.info musicmarkup.info The mean SCQ score of children with autism was , whereas.

For a cut point of 16, receiver operating Communication Questionnaire SCQ as a screen for autism characteristics analyses showed a sensitivity of 0. Among other findings, this UK study found a and without autism; a cut point of 15 yielded a sensitivity of sensitivity of 0. The latter cut point for the separation of ASD from non- 0. The SCQ2 is a parent report original. This may be due to the fact initial standardization study.

Between a ROC and a hard place: decision making and making decisions about using the SCQ.

Bern, Switzerland: Huber; However, they may also become manifested in later age, when the social demand and requirements exceed the limited functional capabilities of an autism individual. Thus, including sensory profile in the new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition DSM-5 diagnostic criteria [ 25 ] can have positive implications on autism diagnosis in females. Females with autism have greater self-awareness and make greater effort to camouflage their deficits [ 22 , 26 , 27 ].

Despite the SCQ specifically targeting the social and communication domains, it has not yet been assessed for possible gender differences in its scores. The tests in autism may be biased toward identifying autism predominantly in males [ 31 ]. For instance, males with autism exhibit more repetitive behaviours than females with autism [ 32 ].

Thus, if repetitive behaviour is used as critical diagnostic criteria, females with autism might be missed.

Although Van Wijngaarden-Cremers et al. Thus, it remains unclear whether males and females with autism differ only in the repetitive domain or also on the social behaviour and communication dimension. First, children with autism show deficits in the development of gestural communication [ 33 ]; they gesture less and at lower rates compared to both typically developing children and also other children who are developmentally delayed [ 34 ].

Second, gestures are coded under the communication section of ADOS-2 algorithm. The better an individual performs on gesturing, the lower the autism score he or she receives under this item on the algorithm.

The recent gender differences on the scores in ADOS-2 under this non-verbal communication domain in a Polish sample of high functioning adolescents with autism [ 22 ] require further investigation of this dimension.

Since Polish diagnostic and screening measures tap the symptomatology associated with autism, and since the intensity of autistic traits and the emotional competence of Polish children with autism are not widely described in the international literature, we also present the results obtained on these measures with particular focus on parent-report screening measurements as they include the questions on the communication of a child, both verbal and non-verbal gestures as well.

The primary aim of this study is to present an innovative computerized technique to objectively evaluate the non-verbal modality of communication gestures during two demonstration tasks of ADOS-2 Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition.

This GI was compared between males and females with autism. The authors tested if females with autism had a higher GI compared to males with autism. To our best knowledge, no such studies have been carried out so far.

This gap in the literature is filled in with the study described below. Participants The study group consisted of 33 high-functioning Polish girls and boys with formal diagnosis of autism or Asperger syndrome who were recruited into the autism spectrum conditions ASC -Inclusion project [ 23 ].

For the purpose of this study and to meet the inclusion criteria, it was sufficient that the IQ of a child was previously tested; this fact was documented in the medical records and the IQ results were average or above, provided either as a numerical score or as a written form which is a standard in Polish medical records. As outlined, parents of our participants were also a part of the study. They participated in the assessments regarding their children which are referred to in the subsequent part of the paper.

Informed written consent was obtained for all participants in accordance with procedures approved by the above Research Ethics Committees.

Measures In this study, we focused on two demonstration activities of ADOS-2 [ 28 ] to collect automated, computerized data on gestures, independent of human judgment.

Thirty-three high-functioning children with autism were tested during two demonstration activities of Module 3 of the author-reviewed Polish research translation ADOS Automated measurement of gestures was performed during the Demonstration Task and the Cartoons Task Fig. The Cartoons Task provide an opportunity to observe the way in which a participant narrates a story, uses gestures to enact events and integrates gestures with gaze and language.

EyesWeb software platform supports the design and development of real-time multimodal systems and applications, integrating a wide number of fully synchronized input devices including motion capture systems, various types of professional and low cost video cameras, game interfaces e.

Kinect, Wii , multichannel audio input e. EyesWeb outputs include multichannel audio, video, analog devices and robotic platforms. Particularly useful features of EyesWeb include the support of real-time synchronized recordings of multimodal channels and the software libraries for non-verbal expressive gesture analysis and non-verbal social signals analysis.

Video Title Goes Here

In this specific application, we used the Microsoft Kinect sensor for the automated gesture analysis task. The Kinect and the video camera were placed in front of the table where an ADOS-2 session was administered to each child. Every tested child was facing the Kinect. Three researchers were present in a testing room: researcher 1 who was administrating ADOS-2 to a child, researcher 2 who was recording two demonstration activities with the Kinect connected to the computer application and researcher 3 who was recording the whole ADOS-2 session with a video camera.

It marked the start and the end of each demonstration activity. All the recordings were double checked by the researchers after each session to make sure that the start and the end of the demonstration activities were recorded correctly for further analysis. In the output, the application we used returns with coordinates in the X, Y, and Z dimensions of ten characteristic points of a child being recorded head, neck, left shoulder, right shoulder, left elbow, right elbow, left wrist, right wrist, left palm with the fingers and right palm with the fingers.

Each point is shown in Fig. The numerical data from the recordings of each point was calculated. The results of all 10 points, for each demonstration activity individually and as a sum of two activities together were presented for each gender separately and also compared between two genders. If any of the coordinates were missing or incomplete on the Kinect recordings, we did not take this data to the final analysis and the comparison.
