The Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory–Computer Adaptive Test–ASD: Responsibility Scale (PEDI) targets limitations in managing daily life tasks. Adolescents (ages 14 to 22) with ASD without intellectual disability (n = 125) performed below expectations based on their intellectual level on the PEDI. Eighty-six percent of youth demonstrated borderline or significant delays in management of life tasks. If unaddressed, this challenge may create significant barriers to success in work and independent living.
