Developmental problems in children are fully assessed mostly in tertiary health care institutions, most of which are specifically oriented to a particular area.In view of limited availability of level 1 screening tools in Serbian language, as well as sparse data of their application in Serbian primary health care setting, we sought to translate, assess reliability and, in part, test the applicability of M-CHAT-R/F as an ASD screening tool in Serbian clinical setting.The Cronbach’s α coefficient was 0.91 and Guttman’s λ6 was 0.93.Test – retest reliability was deemed as acceptable, and no significant correlation was found between M-CHAT-R/F scores and Epworth Sleepiness Scale for children scores.Slight adaptation of wording was required due to languages differences.The research was conducted in three primary health care centres, and in one tertiary psychiatric centre with a child and adolescent psychiatric unit within it, between December 2014 and October 2015.One of the first available level 1 screening tools for ASD was the Checklist for Autism in Toddlers (CHAT), developed by Baron-Cohen et al. As a more sensitive alternative to this questionnaire, Robins et al.constructed in 2001, for the needs of the American healthcare system, a Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers (M-CHAT).
In this study we aim to translate, assess reliability and, in part, test the applicability of Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers, Revised, with Follow-Up (M-CHAT R/F) in Serbian Healthcare environment.
The Serbian version of the M-CHAT-R/F has shown satisfactory reliability.
