Autism Screening With Online Decision Support by Primary Care Pediatricians Aided by M-CHAT/F

An evaluation of the feasibility, validity, and reliability of the Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers (M-CHAT) with Follow-up Interview (M-CHAT/F) as administered via a secure web site before an 18- or 24-month well-child visit. Validation pf the primary-care process was evaluated by trained research assistants in an academic center via in-person or telephone interviews. Results were promising that this 2-step, primary-care based method was valid and had good positive predictive value.
