Social Responsiveness Scale

The Social Responsiveness Scale Second Edition (SRS-2) is a self-report questionnaire used to identify social characteristics commonly associated with autism in children, adolescents, and adults. The SRS-2 adult version contains 65-items that are sensitive to subtle features, making it ideal for adults who are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.

It’s important to note that the SRS-2 is based on a deficit model, which we try to avoid. However, the SRS-2 is unique in its ability to differentiate between autism and other conditions, making it helpful for differential diagnosis as well as exploring the significance of social challenges within the autism spectrum.

​​​​​​​This questionnaire is just one of the many sources of information that a diagnostician can pull from in addition to other questionnaires and of course, the clinical interview.
