Autism Spectrum Disorder


ICHOM ASD Standard Set Webinar

We will be running a webinar on Autism Spectrum Disorder on 4th October 2021 (11am EST/4pm BST/ 5pm CET) to ­present the newly launched ASDSS. The virtual event will include a discussion around the project’s inception, ASDSS process, the final standard set, implementation of the standard on a global scale and how this will affect people with autism. Healthcare officials, clinicians, and people with autism and their families and caregivers are encouraged to attend to learn about how the ASDSS will enhance the standard of autism care.

The ICHOM Standard Set for Autism Spectrum Disorders is the result of hard work by a group of leading researchers, psychologists, behavioural analysts, and service user representatives. It represents the outcomes that matter most to children (over the age of 18 months) and adults with autism spectrum disorders. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their service users.
