Con el fin de establecer el diagnostico en Adrian, segun los criterios del DSM-IV, se aplicaron varios instrumentos: ADI-R, SCQ, GADS y el WISC-R.

3 Identificacao de todos os registros do SAC (Servico de Atendimento ao Consumidor) e do SCQ
(Servico de Controle de Qualidade), ou seja, as comunicacoes entre clientes e empresa (data e tipo do registro).
The SCQ is a 10-item scale including statements such as "stereotypes about (stigmatized population) have not affected me personally" and" I never worry that my behaviors will be viewed as stereotypically (stigmatized population).
Originally, the SCQ was meant for use with an adult population; however, the scale was modified for use with children for the purposes of this study.
A total score of 15 or above on the SCQ
is often used to define a threshold for autism spectrum disorders, and a score of 22 or above is used to define a threshold for autism.
The Autism Diagnostic Interview and SCQ are parent interviews that are designed to collect onset and early development information in addition to parents' observations of a child's behavior within several symptom domains associated with autism (communication, social interactions, play, and restricted, repetitive behaviors and interests).
All children in this study were diagnosed with autism by meeting criteria on the ADOS, SCQ and through current clinical judgment determined by the second author (SLH), who is a clinical psychologist.
Alternatively, the SCQ
requires the parent to simply respond in the affirmative or negative as to whether or not their child has displayed a particular symptom in the last 3 months.
It is possible that the sequencing of questions in the SCQ
may have contributed to a bias in overestimating the number of the original participants who had not experienced any of the cognitions as both positive and negative and/or to a bias in assigning participants to Cognition 1.
If the score on the SCQ
is above 15, the ADI-R and ADOS are administered on a second visit.
In contrast, none of the NCBRF subscales correlated significantly with the SCQ
social or communication measures.
