The third edition of the Gilliam Autism Rating Scale - one of the most used for assessing ASD instruments in the world - is now available in Spanish. The GARS-3S helps teachers, parents and physicians to identify autism in individuals and provides an estimate of their severity. The GARS-3S reagents are based on diagnostic criteria for autism spectrum disorders adopted by the APA in 2013 and published in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-Fourth Edition (DSM-5). The GARS-3S generates standard scores, percentile ranks, severity and likelihood of autism.

The instrument consists of 56 clearly defined reagents that describe the behavior characteristics of people with autism. The reagents are grouped into six subscales: Repetitive / limited behavior, social interaction, social communication, emotional responses, cognitive style, and Speak inadequate.
