a collaborative knowledge base characterizing the state of current thought in Cognitive Science.
The Social Communication Questionnaire consists of 40 yes/no questions (answered by parents) to screen for autism spectrum disorders in children four years of age and older. Specifically, the questions ask about social functioning and communication skills. Two forms of the SCQ include the Lifetime and Current, which assesst behaviors for each of those periods.

Theoretically derived subscales include 1) Reciprocal Social Interaction subscale, 2) Communication subscale, and 3) Restricted, Repetitive, and Stereotyped Patterns of Behavior subscale, although they have not been formally validated.

Questions 20 through 40 (Lifetime) focus on behaviors occurring between the ages of 4 and 5.
Total scores can range from 0 to 39
The first question is a language screening item that is not included in the final score.
Total SCQ raw score of ≥ 15 is highly suggestive of ASD

Experimental conditions are the subsets of an experiment that define the relevant experimental manipulation.


You must specify conditions before you can define contrasts.

In the Cognitive Atlas, we define a contrast as any function over experimental conditions. The simplest contrast is the indicator value for a specific condition; more complex contrasts include linear or nonlinear functions of the indicator across different experimental conditions.


No indicators have yet been associated.

An indicator is a specific quantitative or qualitative variable that is recorded for analysis. These may include behavioral variables (such as response time, accuracy, or other measures of performance) or physiological variables (including genetics, psychophysiology, or brain imaging data).
