Autism Spectrum Quotient AQ test

I paid my 7 ½ year old ten bucks to take this test (it is 50 questions and he needed some motivation to sit through it). He only needed help with a few questions, but overall he was able to understand and complete most of the scaled responses. I was very proud of his ability to read out loud and articulate the complex words. J Any who, I asked him to take the test so that I can have a clear measurement for his possible “aspie” traits. Come to find out, he is probably more normal then me. Lol. He scored a 10 on the Autism Spectrum Quotient AQ test on the aspergerstestsite.com. I will locate a test [online screening] that is more suitable for younger kids like my 4 year old. I just wanted to test out this particular screening for those who might want to use it for their children aged 6-7 and over.

 Your AQ Test Score is: 10
In terms of the distribution of the scores of the general population it can be said that the getting a score of:
11 – 22 is Average for most of the population.
22 – 31 Indicates that one has slightly higher than average autistic traits.
32 + Shows a high degree of autistic tendencies
A score of 50 is the maximum that can be achieved with the AQ Test and indicates an extremely high degree of Autistic traits
