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).
The Form E-2 checklist also asks parents to rate the effectiveness of various interventions they have tried on their son/daughter. Information on the effectiveness of interventions is compiled on a regular basis and the resulting Parent Ratings of Behavorial Effects of Biomedical Interventions are shared with families and professionals throughout the world.
Form E-2 is available on request in English. Our files contain information on over 40,000 children from more than 60 countries. Our service to researchers depends in part on our having a comprehensive bank of up-to-date information about children with these severe disorders. Your help in completing the E-2 checklist and submitting them to ARI will be greatly appreciated.
