Autism Inventory of Development: An Assessment Tool for Parents and Professionals
Author(s): Roya Ostovar
The Autism Inventory Development (AID) was designed to be a tool to gather critical information for the process of assessing for Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The critical informational areas the AID covers include the following:
• Family History
• Child History
• Medical History
• Developmental Milestones
• Cognitive and Executive Functioning Abilities
• Social Functioning
• Sensory Integration and Processing
The AID was created with two purposes in mind. First, it was created for clinicians to obtain a comprehensive record of a child’s history to assist in the diagnostic process. Second, and equally important, it was created for parents, caregivers, and/or family members to create a record for themselves that holds critical and important historical information for the individual being assessed.
