ASDetect enables parents and caregivers to review possible early signs of autism in their children aged younger than 2 ½ years.
With actual clinical videos of children with and without autism, each question focuses on a specific ‘social communication’ behaviour, for example, pointing, social smiling.

This award-winning app is based on comprehensive, rigorous, world-class research conducted at the Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre at La Trobe University, Australia. The research underlying this app has proven 81% - 83% accurate in the early detection of autism.

Assessments take only 20-30 minutes, and parents can review their answers before submitting.

As autism and related conditions can develop over time, the app contains 3 assessments: for children aged 12, 18 and 24 months.

Our early autism detection method is the most effective technique available to professionals to monitor early signs of autism and since ASDetect launched in 2015, this method has also helped thousands of families.

Repeated login issues

This is a really useful tool, however I keep having login issues (despite resetting password etc). Cannot view the results.

Issues with videos

Unfortunately the videos are not much help because the volume does not work.

Developer Response ,

Hi PerthMuso, all our videos are narrated by Dr. Barbaro explaining the key behaviours for you to watch for - we are not entirely sure why the audio doesn't appear to be working for you, however. you can always direct a question to the email, and one of our team can help you troubleshoot the issue.
