Autism & Asperger’s Self-Assessment Tests

Here are some helpful –and I would consider trustworthy– self-assessment screening tools to see whether you may or may not sit on the autism spectrum.

Bear in mind that although these self-tests are a very useful indicator, none of these give you a formal AS diagnosis. A clinical diagnosis has to be completed by an Autism Spectrum Diagnostic service.

If you do find yourself wondering why you experience certain difficulties and have no clue as to why, it might be worth printing off your tests and seeking a clinical referral via your doctor, as I did!

If you are a female reading this, you may find your path to diagnosis a surprise, and possibly more difficult, but I will post separate articles regarding this to keep this page clean and simple.

Specific autism screening tools commonly used in the UK include:

Screening tests
