CARVALHO, Mírian Carla Lima; ALBUQUERQUE, Murilo Cezar de Souza; PALITOT, Mônica Dias  and  CHAVES, Célia Maria Cruz Marques. Psychometric instruments for probing autism disorder: A systematic review. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2021, vol.38, n.117, pp. 433-448. ISSN 0103-8486.

The general objective of this study was to conduct a survey of the psychometric assessment tools for Autism Spectrum Disorder. The chosen search platform was the "Journals Portal of the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES)", on its advanced search function, using the following descriptors: 'Autistic Disorder AND Psychometric'. The filters "peer-reviewed" and "in the last 10 years" were applied to it. In the research, 302 scientific papers were found, between the years 2009 and 2019. When analyzed by titles and abstracts, 56 papers were selected for containing both descriptors and synonyms related to Psychometry (such as validity). The objectives of this study were achieved. And with that, it was noticed a collection of tools with assessing functions applied to the parents of children with autism, as well as with psychometric properties of validity and reliability. However, it is suggested there is a gap concerning the tools created from the Brazilian ambit.
