Abstract

The Social Communication Assessment for Toddlers with Autism (SCATA) was designed to measure non-verbal communication, including early and atypical communication, in young children with autism spectrum disorder. Each communicative act is scored according to its form, function, role and complexity. The SCATA was used to measure communicative ability longitudinally in two samples of toddlers with autism spectrum disorder. Overall frequency of non-verbal communicative acts did not change between the two assessments. However, the form and complexity, the function and the role the child took in the interaction did change with time. Both frequency and function of communicative acts in toddlerhood were positively associated with later language ability: social acts, comments and initiations showed greater predictive association than requests and responses.

Initial follow-up at age 36 months indicated a significant trend to increased language ability in a subgroup of the parent-training group compared to the local service as usual group (Drew et al., 2002). However, as the intervention was low intensity (one visit every 6 weeks) and time limited (continuing for a further 6 months only to 42 months of age) and because all the children had been in school settings for several years at the time of the 7 year follow-up it was considered unlikely that any benefit maintained. An analysis of key outcome variables (IQ, language and symptom severity scores) between the N = 11 parent training and the N = 10 local services only followed-up at age 7 years revealed no group differences. Details of this analysis are available from the first author.
