Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers (M-CHAT)

The Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers (M-CHAT) is a developmental screening tool for toddlers between 16 and 30 months of age.

It is designed to identify children who may benefit from a more thorough developmental and autism evaluation.

The M-CHAT can be administered and scored as part of a well-child check-up, and also can be used by specialists or other professionals to screen for developmental delay and autism.
