- Structure autism screening instrument administered [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]Physicians are reminded by the computer system to screen children under 3 years of age for autism with a structured screening instrument. Chart abstraction is used to document whether or not the screening occurred.
- Are appropriate diagnostic studies conducted among children who screen positive for autism. [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]Among children who a suspected of having autism, chart abstraction and interviews are done to determine if the child received appropriate diagnostic and studies.
