Abstract

ASD knowledge deficits contribute to disparities in the timing and quality of ASD services. To address the limitations with existing measures of ASD knowledge, we developed and examined the Autism Stigma and Knowledge Questionnaire (ASK-Q), which comprehensively assesses multiple subdomains of ASD knowledge while maintaining strong psychometric support and cross-cultural utility. ASK-Q items derived from the published research are organized into four subscales: (i) diagnosis, (ii) etiology, (iii) treatment, and (iv) stigma. ASK-Q items were selected based on ratings of face, construct, and cross-cultural validity by a group of 16 international researchers. Using Diagnostic Classification Modeling we confirmed the proposed factor structure and evaluated the statistical validity of each item among a lay sample of 617 participants.

To calculate the subscores, items that measure two subdomains are still counted as 1 point for each subdomain. For example, the maximum score on the D/S subdomain is equal to 18 and there are 17 simple structure items (see Table 5) and 1 complex item (Item 18 in Table 6).
