**Google Impact Challenge Australia finalist, 2016**
**iAwards National & State winner, R&D project of the year, 2016**
The video-led self-assessment questions are based on comprehensive, rigorous,
world-class research conducted at the Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre. The research underlying this app has proven 81% accurate in the early detection of autism and other related developmental conditions.
ASDetect guides parents through each assessment using a combination of videos and questions, as well as activities that they can do with their child.
As autism and related conditions can develop over time, the app contains 3 assessments: for children aged 12, 18 and 24 months.
Our developmental early detection program for infants and toddlers is the most effective technique available to professionals to monitor early signs of autism. We are now putting this important resource in the hands of parents and caregivers.
About the Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre (OTARC)
OTARC is Australia's first centre dedicated to research on Autism Spectrum Disorders.
It was established in 2008 at La Trobe University to advance knowledge of autism, and to develop and study evidence-based strategies for supporting children with autism and their families.
We are committed to helping families and early childhood professionals learn about autism, so we can make life-long positive outcomes through early detection, diagnosis and intervention for children with autism.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
