Abstract:

The article presents the questionnaire data of parents of 30 children aged 16 to 30 months (1.3 - 2.5 years) using the M-CHAT-R screening method, supplemented by the M-CHAT interview, a modified questionnaire on autism in young children. The study showed the effectiveness of the screening method for early diagnosis and dynamic monitoring of the condition of children. Among children with suspected ASD, a low risk of developing this pathology was identified in 30%, an average risk in 46.7%, and a high risk of developing ASD in 23.3%. As a result of follow-up observations for 6 months in children with medium and high risk in all cases, autism spectrum disorders were diagnosed.
