Your total score is: 192. This is above the threshold score of 65. You may have an autistic spectrum disorder and it may be worth consulting a qualified clinician.

Here is a detailed breakdown of your results:

Social relatedness : 100 (threshold 31)
Language : 12 (threshold 4)
Sensory/motor : 43 (threshold 16)
Circumscribed Interests : 37 (threshold 15)



I can see some problems with this test though. For one thing, it is impossible to evaluate some of the statements in absolute terms like true or false. Statements like "I am an understanding type of person" can be somewhat true or mostly true, and the test should reflect that.

Some statements made no logical sense. For example, "The same sound, color or texture can suddenly change from very sensitive to very dull." A sound or color can't be sensitive. Whoever picked that adjective in this context needs to be put against a wall and left standing there for at least an hour. "Interesting" would be a better fit.

Other statements were too specific and didn't allow for different coping strategies, like "Sometimes I cover my ears to block out painful noises (like vacuum cleaners or people talking too much or too loudly)." I wouldn't cover my ears because that would be considered weird, but I would have to leave the room and find a quiet place. It should be "Noises like vacuum cleaners or people talking too much or too loudly can be painful and bothersome for me", imho.

This is why you are supposed to be accompanied by a specialist who can explain what the questions really mean. No matter how the questions are phrased some will seem unclear, especially to people on the autistic spectrum who often have trouble generalizing.

I agree but that is how the test was designed and I wanted to keep it as close to the original as possible.
