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.
