ds2 had an ados test about 3 years ago , at the time i was told he had scored very low and he does not have asd , they seemed quite sure about that.

last october another psychiatrist saw him for about an hour and said he thought he does have asd .

i asked today what his ados score had been and was told it was 8. so , can anyone tell me what his score would have to be to indicate asd ?

I think the scores range from 0-22 and autism / Aspergers is 10 or above. Could you have another test to see if anything has changed since the last one?

iirc, dd's paed explained to me that an ados score of 0-7 is normal, 8-11 is asd and anything above 12 is autism (still hmm about the asd-autism distinction).

8 would have been just above the cut of for an ads dx. did you not get a report with all the scores and subscores?

no , we didnt get any scores at the time , we got a letter telling us he had scored low and a few other things but no actual scores . tbh she wasnt for giving me those scores yesterday , i have no idea why not . in the end i was told that he had scored 4 points in one area and 4 points in another , so must have been a score of zero in the others .
