so what does this mean...

Total Raw Score is 30. Apserger syndrome quotient is 92 within the 25th percentile and scores between 90-110 are likely.

Maybe im just reading this all wrong but I dont get it. Help please!

i have found this little bit of info, interestingly i took the test and my daughters score would have been 33, so im not sure what thats telling me, if i said to my daughter do you want to go to the theatre or a museum first thing she would ask is what is a theatre

Psychologist Simon Baron-Cohen and his colleagues at Cambridge's Autism Research Centre have created the Autism-Spectrum Quotient, or AQ, as a measure of the extent of autistic traits in adults. In the first major trial using the test, the average score in the control group was 16.4. Eighty percent of those diagnosed with autism or a related disorder scored 32 or higher. The test is not a means for making a diagnosis, however, and many who score above 32 and even meet the diagnostic criteria for mild autism or Asperger's report no difficulty functioning in their everyday lives.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
