Proper autism diagnosis requires significantly more testing than an online questionnaire. My son spent countless hours with a neuropsychologist to get accurate answers. They may be doing valuable research, but this is not any form of a valid measure. Nothing aimed at you, Dirk. The offensive part is that whoever put that up online thinks a handful of questions answered by random people on the internet can tell them whether or not they fall somewhere on the spectrum. It demeans the struggle that is everyday life of someone with autism.
It seems they acknowledge themselves that this is kinda bs.
