Autism Family Experience Questionnaire

0 Shared Subjects

The Autism Family Experience Questionnaire (AFEQ) was developed through focus groups and online consultation with parents, and reflected parental priorities. The 48 item questionnaire contains items organized into four pre-specified domains: experience of being a parent; family life; child development, understanding and social relationships; and child symptoms. The AFEQ includes both positively and negatively worded statements and was scored on an order scale: 1 = always to 5 = never, with an option for “Not Applicable”.
