The Autism Screening Instrument for Educational Planning—Third Edition (ASIEP-3) is a valid and reliable measure of autism and related behaviours. It was designed to identify individuals with autism; assist in planning appropriate educational programs for those individuals; monitor performance and progress; and research autism. Necessary data is collected from five main standardised components:
· Autism Behavior Checklist — provides a checklist of 47 behaviours typical of autistic individuals for use during the initial screening process
· Sample of Vocal Behavior — measures four characteristics of the spontaneous speech of children with autism (i.e., repetitiveness, noncommunication, intelligibility, and babbling)
· Interaction Assessment — measures a child’s spontaneous social responses and reactions to requests
· Educational Assessment — measures a child’s functioning levels in five areas (i.e., stay in seat, receptive language, expressive language, body concept, and speech imitation)
· Prognosis of Learning Rate — examines a child’s learning acquisition rate, using a discrete trial-direct instruction format
This revised edition covers normed data for individuals between the ages of 2-0 (2 years 0 months) and 13-11 (13 years 11 months). Teachers, school psychologists, speech-language pathologists, parents, or professionals familiar with autism can quickly score the test, making it time and cost effective.
