Screening for Autism Spectrum Disorder in Young Children


This topic page summarizes the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) evidence on screening for autism spectrum disorder in young children. In an effort to make the USPSTF recommendations clearer and its processes more transparent, the Task Force is sharing drafts of its draft Research Plans, Evidence Reviews, and Recommendation Statements. As a result, the final Recommendation Statement is not yet available.
