SILVA, Camila Costa e  e  ELIAS, Luciana Carla dos Santos. Assessment Tools for Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Systematic Review. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.2, pp. 189-197. ISSN 1677-0471.

This paper sought to systematically review the scientific literature related to instruments validated in Brazil for the characterization of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), according to reports of parents and/or caregivers. The following databases were searched: Embase, PubMed, Scopus and VHL. Eight articles were published between 2009 and March 2019. The PRISMA protocol was used and two judges independently verified the article selection and inclusion procedures. There were variations in the studies identified regarding the sample, the steps followed in the validation of the instruments, the statistical results obtained and the submission to SATEPSI. Although the instruments present evidence of validity, they are only available in scientific papers. Considering the psychometric aspects and the guidelines of the Federal Council of Psychology, no specific diagnostic instrument for ASD was identified as being available to the professional psychologist in Brazil, demonstrating a critical situation for the clinical practice in this area.
