The Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist (ATEC) is a reliable and valid testing measure developed by Bernard Rimland and Stephen M. Edelson of the Autism Research Institute to assess the effectiveness of various autism intervention methods.
The ATEC questionnaire is designed to be completed by parents, teachers, and/or caretakers and covers 4 areas of functioning:
- Speech/Language Communication (14 items);
- Sociability (20 items);
- Sensory/ Cognitive Awareness (18 items); and
- Health/Physical/Behavior (25 items).
