Abstract

Extant data suggest that the cognitive profiles of individuals with ASD may be characterized by variability, particularly in terms of verbal intellectual functioning (VIQ) and non-verbal intellectual functioning (NVIQ) discrepancies. The Differential Ability Scales, Second Edition (DAS-II) has limited data available on its use with youth with ASD. The current study examined data from 2,110 youth with ASD in order to characterize performance on the DAS-II and to investigate potential discrepancies between VIQ and NVIQ. A larger proportion of individuals in the ASD sample had significant discrepancies between VIQ and NVIQ when compared to the normative sample [early years sample χ2 (2) = 38.36; p < .001; school age sample χ2 (2) = 13.48; p < .01]. Clinical and research implications are discussed.
