Through comparison with the Child Behavior Checklist and various other demographic factors, this study showed that the Aberrant Behavior Checklist can be effectively used in both clinical and research settings with a pediatric Autism population. In addition, the researchers presented norms (i.e., average scores) for these children so that other professionals using the Aberrant Behavior Checklist can determine if the scores for a given child are low, medium, or high.

The end result is that parents, teachers and caregivers of autistic children, adolescents and adults will soon have much better, more complete and reliable information on what treatments actually work, and how well they work. It also helps estimate the severity of the child's disorder. Derrick Lonsdale, Raymond J. Shamberger, Tapan Audhya (2002).

Austin, TX: Pro-Ed. (2003). ARI’s Diagnostic Checklist, Form E-2, was developed by Dr. Bernard Rimland to diagnose children with Kanner’s syndrome, which is also known as ‘classical autism.’ Many parents and professionals have also used the E-2 checklist to assist in the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). As there are a great many treatment methods used to help autistic children, but very few tests, scales, or other outcome measures that can be used to evaluate the efficacy of these treatments, the Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist could be a very useful tool for those who specialize in a specific area, such as: Please see the Autism Research Institute's letter to practitioners and researchers for important additional information.
