VT-ILEHP Autism Learning Resources
Vermont Interdisciplinary Leadership Education for Health Professionals (VT-ILEHP) Autism Learning Resources
The VT-ILEHP program has developed learning modules for several Autism screening tools as well as other instructional materials in an effort to create additional resources for the Autism support community in Vermont as well as the Autism support community at large. These resources can help train primary health care and community providers for children birth to 6 who use best practices in the screening and referral of children at risk for or suspected of having an ASD as well as the training and development of regional interdisciplinary, family-centered and culturally competent assessment teams who are implementing best practices in the differential diagnosis of children with ASD.
VT-ILEHP Autism Grant Extention and Learning Resources
As a part of the VT-ILEHP Grant Expansion, the program has designed the following learning modules for Autism Screening tools
- M-CHAT: The Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers - a 23-question parental survey for use by doctors or early interventionists
- GARS-2: The Gilliam Autism Rating Scale - Second Edition - a 3-section, 42-question norm-referenced screening form for teachers, parents and caregivers
- PDDST-II: The Pervasive Developmental Disorders Screening Test - Second Edition - a parental-report Autism screening tool for childhood development visits
- SCQ: The Social Communication Questionnaire - a 40-question parental report screening form which parallels the Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised
