The Autism Spectrum Quotient—Children’s Version (AQ-Child) is a parent-report questionnaire that aims to quantify autistic traits in children 4–11 years old. The range of scores on the AQ-Child is 0–150. It was administered to children with an autism spectrum condition (ASC) (n = 540) and a general population sample (n = 1,225). Results showed a significant difference in scores between those with an ASC diagnosis and the general population. Receiver-operating-characteristic analyses showed that… Expand

TLDR
The pattern of difference between clinical groups and controls was found to be similar in both countries and males scored significantly higher than females. Expand
Psychometric Properties of the Autism Spectrum Quotient: Children’s Version (AQ-Child)
TLDR
Interestingly, EFA findings indicated most support for a four-factor model, with factors reflecting “mind-reading”, “social skills”. Expand
Adaptation of the Autism Spectrum Screening Questionnaire (ASSQ) to preschool children
TLDR
The results showed the ASSQ had reliability and validity as a screening instrument for preschool children in community settings, just as in school-aged children, and multi-faceted evaluation is necessary in clinical settings, for example, the addition of teachers’ ratings. Expand
The relationship between Autism Spectrum Quotient (AQ) and uneven intellectual development in school-age children
Abstract Previous studies have found correlations between uneven intellectual development and autistic symptom severity but thus far each study has looked only at specific types of discrepancy scoreExpand
The Autism-Spectrum Quotient—Italian Version: A Cross-Cultural Confirmation of the Broader Autism Phenotype
TLDR
It is concluded that the Italian AQ is a cross-culturally reliable measure of these different phenotypes, and can be used to identify a phenotypic gradient of severity of autistic traits in families. Expand

Abstract There is considerable debate about the sociocognitive features of autism spectrum conditions (ASC), and a tool for profiling the sociocognitive profiles of children and adolescents with ASCExpand
Defining the broader, medium and narrow autism phenotype among parents using the Autism Spectrum Quotient (AQ)
TLDR
The Autism Spectrum Quotient provides an efficient method for quantifying where an individual lies along the dimension of autistic traits, and extends the notion of a broader phenotype among first-degree relatives of those with ASC. Expand

TLDR
The Mandarin AQ demonstrated promising psychometric properties and was a reliable instrument for quantifying autistic traits in both clinical and non-clinical samples in mainland China. Expand

Screening for Autism Spectrum Disorders With the Social Communication Questionnaire
TLDR
The SCQ would seem to be a useful tool for identifying young children in need of further assessment and assisting in routing them to the appropriate clinic, especially if used in conjunction with a screening by a community professional. Expand
The Autism-Spectrum Quotient (AQ): Evidence from Asperger Syndrome/High-Functioning Autism, Malesand Females, Scientists and Mathematicians
TLDR
The Autism-Spectrum Quotient is a valuable instrument for rapidly quantifying where any given individual is situated on the continuum from autism to normality, and its potential for screening for autism spectrum conditions in adults of normal intelligence remains to be fully explored. Expand
Autism‐Spectrum Quotient–Japanese version and its short forms for screening normally intelligent persons with pervasive developmental disorders
TLDR
The AQ‐J and two short forms are useful not to predict but to rule out mild HPDD, the most difficult part of H PDD to be distinguished from non‐PDD conditions, in persons scoring under the cut‐offs and to consider professionals’ examination of HPDd in people scoring over them. Expand
Using self-report to identify the broad phenotype in parents of children with autistic spectrum disorders: a study using the Autism-Spectrum Quotient.
TLDR
The Autism Spectrum Quotient appears to be sensitive to the broad phenotype, provided attention is restricted to the social skills and communication scales. Expand

TLDR
AQ score was successfully predicted from EQ and SQ-R scores, and the weak but significant negative correlation may indicate a trade-off between them. Expand
