Many children in Kentucky receive their autism spectrum diagnosis from the Weiskoff Center in Louisville.

There are many evaluation tools for the autism spectrum. I find the DSM-IV diagnostic criteria useful (200 dpi scan), but Dr. Tony Attwood noted at the ASA 2002 conference that different evaluation tools are often used in other countries. The Autism Biomedical Information Network has a good list of screening and diagnosis references for Pediatricians. I wish every pediatrician was familar with the Checklist for Autism in Toddlers (CHAT). This tool might make them less hesitant to refer children for evaluation.
