Could you be on the Autistic Spectrum?

Could you be on the Autistic Spectrum?

This is not a diagnostic tool, if you get a high score and you are concerned about it please shoot me a message and I can provide you with more resources and answer your questions :) A high score is not a 100% sign that you have autism, it just means that you have a lot of traits associated with autism, and it's possible that you are neurodivergent.
