Important Precaution

This test is a self-assessment tool and not a definitive diagnostic instrument. The results should be used as a reference and not as a final diagnosis. Autism spectrum disorders can only be diagnosed by qualified professionals. If your results indicate the possibility of an autism spectrum disorder, or if you have concerns about your mental well-being, please seek guidance from a medical professional or specialist.
