This module provides an overview of the TELE-ASD-PEDS tool which is designed for use by providers and families during a telehealth assessment for autism. The TELE-ASD-PEDS tool allows providers to walk families through tasks with their child while professionals observe the possible presence of autism symptoms. The tool was designed for use with children under 36 months of age who have been referred due to concerns for possible autism spectrum disorder and developed through Vanderbilt Medical Center’s TRIAD program.

The module is divided into 3 one-hour segments.
