As a member of an Autism Evaluation team for a public school district, I developed this checklist as a way to keep myself organized and take data during Autism Evaluations with older students. I also use this form to help me write reports.
It is divided into the following sections: Expressive Language, Receptive Language, and Non-Verbal Communication/Social Communication. When I write my reports I typically write one section at a time (Non-Verbal Language, Social Language, Etc.) and I try to provide both examples and approximate percentages of skill abilities that were observed during the evaluation. Each skill section has an “example” category which I use to take data and to document examples to include in my report.
For this older population, unless there are significant developmental delays, I briefly evaluate Expressive/Receptive Language abilities and focus primarily on evaluating Social Language and Non-Verbal Language. Because Autism Evaluations with older students are typically interview based rather than play based, I have also included a list of interview questions that correspond to the checklist to guide your evaluation.
This product is also a part of my Autism Evaluation Resource Bundle.
