The ICHOM Set of Patient-Centered Outcome Measures for Autism Spectrum Disorders is the result of hard work by a group of leading researchers, psychologists, behavioural analysts, and service user representatives. It represents the outcomes that matter most to children (over the age of 18 months) and adults with autism spectrum disorders. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their service users.
