It is an Autism specific screen that has been shown in 18-month-olds to be significantly more sensitive (0.62 vs. 0.48) but just as specific (o.82 vs 0.81) and no different in positive predictive value PPV (0.37 vs 0.32) than the M-CHAT even with a follow-up interview. It does not require a follow-up interview. Because of the low PPV positives might benefit from another screen at 20 months.
