Autism and Developmental Disorder Screening App

Here's a description of the app written by the app creator:

This is a screening test to look at your child’s development.

The app will allow you to answer a series of questions about your child’s development at ages 8 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, and 24 to 36 months., and will give you results to indicate if your child is at risk for development delays and conditions such as autism.

You will not be able to access the questions for each age until your child reaches that age, but once your child reaches that age, you may repeat the screening as many times as you would like until they reach the next screening age.

For example, you may not access the 12 months old screening until your child turns 12 months old, but you may repeat the 12 month old screening as many times as you like until the child turns 15 months old.

Here are few Sample questions from the app –

Does the child turn around to look at you when his or her name is called?

Does your child imitate you when you clap hands or wave bye-bye?

Does your child point at things?

Does your child smile back at you when you smile at them?

You just need to answer ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.

The questions are constructed by experts who are involved in child development research since many years.

This app is developed by WebTeam Corporation in collaboration with Dr. Michael Lewis.
