Screen for Autism in Children in Only 10 Minutes


The PDDBI-SV helps you quickly identify children at risk for autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Features and benefits

  • Useful for a relatively broad range of ages (a younger range than that offered by most similar instruments).
  • Items assess nonvocal social problem behaviors typically reported in children with ASD as well as social behaviors that are present in typically developing children but that are absent, delayed, or occurring at a much lower rate in children with ASD.
  • Physicians using the PDDBI-SV may submit the cost of its administration for reimbursement by using CPT code 96110.246.
  • The full version of the PDDBI and associated reports to measure progress and compare raters are available.
