As a member of an Autism Evaluation Team for a public school district, this checklist is one of my go-to resources.
I use this checklist when evaluating students approximately ages 7-11 years old to determine if they meet disability criteria as a student with Autism. I developed this checklist as a way to keep myself organized and take data during play based Autism Evaluations. I also use this form to help me write reports.
It is divided into the following sections: Expressive Language, Receptive Language, Play Skills, and Non-Verbal Communication/Social Communication. When I write my reports I typically write one section at a time (Expressive Language, Receptive Language, Etc.) and 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 write examples to include in my report. As students get older, I start to focus less on Expressive/Receptive Language and more on Non-verbal Language and Social Skills.
For older students with limited language skills students I recommend using the Autism Evaluation Checklist for children ages 0-6 years old.
