This chapter highlights advances in early identification of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and priorities for future research. It focuses on current knowledge about early signs, strengths, and limitations of current screening options, and implications for early diagnosis. It begins with discussions of the early signs of ASD and surveillance and screening for ASD. It then reviews available screening tools including the Checklist for Autism in Toddlers (CHAT), the Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers (M-CHAT), the Infant Toddler Checklist (ITC), the Early Screening of Autistic Traits Questionnaire (ESAT), the Screening Tool for Autism in Two-Year-Olds (STAT), the Pervasive Developmental Disorders Screening Test-II (PDDST-II), and the Social Communication Questionnaire (SCQ).
