The STAT is an evidence-based, interactive measure developed to screen for autism in children between 24 and 36 months of age, with a provisional scoring algorithm for children under 24 months. It is designed for use by a wide range of community providers who work with young children in assessment or intervention settings and who have experience with autism. The STAT consists of 12 items and takes about 20 minutes to administer. Activities assess key social and communicative behaviors including imitation, play, requesting, and directing attention. The purpose of this 3 hour webinar is to provide an introduction to the use of the STAT, specifically:
-Overview of administration and scoring of 12 items
-Observation of a STAT administration
-Discussion of potential applications in primary care and telehealth
-Mechanisms for future training
