Persons with autism spectrum disorder suffer from a lifetime condition that requires close follow-up and an individualized treatment plan. Early and specific educational and behavioral interventions are key factors in ensuring better outcomes and social integration for persons with neurodevelopmental disorders.
To design an efficient treatment plan, a thorough assessment is needed. To better serve the children in the Levant and MENA region, we have chosen one of the most widely acknowledged instruments worldwide, the Childhood Autism Rating Scale 2 (CARS2), and have published this validated translation.
The CARS 2 encompasses a manual and three forms: The Standard Version Rating Booklet is for use with children less than 6 years of age and with those with below average intellectual functioning; the High-Functioning Version Rating Booklet is for use with persons who are verbally fluent, over 6 years of age, and with average intellectual functioning. Both rating scales include fifteen items covering all areas of the autism spectrum disorder. The Questionnaire for parents and caregivers is an unscored scale for gathering information from caregivers to be compared with clinical observations.
