Screening / Self Test on Asperger's Syndrome / Autism-Spectrum disorder
Are you showing symptoms of Asperger's Syndrome?
The following questionnaire has been created by reknowned British psychiatrist Dr. Simon Baron-Cohen to assess symptoms of Asperger's Syndrome, which belongs to the lower range of Autism-Spectrum disorders. With his agreement I was the first one to publish a German translation of his test, but here's the English original for your convenience.
Note: this is a screening test, no diagnostic test - so it can't replace a professional psychological, medical or psychotherapeutic diagnosis that should really be done in person. A screening test intends to distinguish persons who require more detailed testing from such who don't require it, so that preventive or therapeutic measures can be taken.
The questionnaire consists of 50 questions and will take about 15 minutes to complete.
After completing the test, the results will be displayed (no fees involved).
Privacy is valued here. Your answers will be saved for statistical purposes, but without personal information. To prevent abuse of this questionnaire, your IP address will be recorded.
The assessment and its evaluation are are completely free.
