Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

The current study aims to examine the utility of the First Years Inventory, a parent-report screener for early identification of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), as a potential tool for distinguishing ASD from other developmental delays. Despite being rarely addressed by previous studies in the field, the differentiation between these two outcome groups is critical for practitioners to be able to provide targeted interventions. Our findings suggest promising predictive validity for young infants.
