quantitative self assessment for autism:

the user must rate their agreement with the following statements on a scale of 1 to 5 (1=strongly disagree, 2=disagree, 3=neither agree nor disagree, 4=agree, 5=strongly agree):

1. I often avoid eye contact with others.

2. I find it difficult to understand jokes and sarcasm.

3. I prefer to stick to a routine and get upset if it is disrupted.

4. I am very interested in details and notice things that others do not.

5. I find it challenging to start or maintain conversations with others.

The program should then calculate a total score based on the user’s responses and provide a result indicating the likelihood that the user has autism. For example:

• A score of 5-10 indicates a low likelihood of autism.

• A score of 11-20 indicates a moderate likelihood of autism.

• A score of 21-25 indicates a high likelihood of autism.

Note that this program is not a diagnostic tool and should not be used to diagnose or confirm a diagnosis of autism. It is intended for informational purposes only and individuals who suspect they may have autism should seek a professional evaluation from a qualified healthcare provider.
