“Our validation study was a big success! After rigorous content review utilizing feedback from subject matter experts, and a series of item edits, CADE was tested across multiple clinical sites with several psychologists  (N=191). We used logistic regression to determine the accuracy in predicting a diagnosis of autism. 
 
We got great results! The scale is 96% accurate in predicting autism.  Scores on CADE were 98 % consistent with ADOS results in terms of diagnosis. Reliability was also excellent with Cronbach’s Alpha at .95. 
                                                                                                                                                                Bearing in mind that this scale takes half the time of a brick and mortar clinic, these results are even more exciting.”
