The Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist (ATEC) was developed to assess the effects of treatment. In addition, parents and professionals have used the ATEC to monitor the general well-being of an individual over time.

The ATEC consists of four subtests: I. Speech/Language Communication (14 items); II. Sociability (20 items); III. Sensory/ Cognitive Awareness (18 items); and IV. Health/Physical/Behavior (25 items). After the ATEC is completed, subscale scores and a total score are provided immediately. Users can also have the results emailed to them as a pdf file.
The ATEC is not a diagnostic checklist. It basically provides several subscale scores as well as a total score to be used for comparison at a later date. Basically, the lower the score, the fewer the problems.
 
Thus, if a person scores a '20' on one day, and then a '15' two weeks later, then the individual showed improvement. In contrast, if the score was '30,' then the individual's behavior worsened.
 
Many parents and teachers use the ATEC to monitor how well the child is doing over time.  In addition, researchers have used the ATEC to document improvement following an intervention by comparing the baseline ATEC scores with the post-treatment ATEC scores.
