I got an ADOS score of 16, how can I find out what that means?

I found this article

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2922918/

ADOS stands for:

Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule

As the name suggests the “raw” ADOS score is about “observations”.

I think 16 is a high score and means you have many observable traits (that can be seen by a doctor or by people who know you) that would fit with a Autism diagnosis. Lower numbers (scores) are fewer observable traits, higher numbers are more observable traits.

I've always wondered what an ADOS score was. Now I know.
