It is viewed as the "gold standard" for observational assessment of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) and provides a highly accurate picture of current symptoms, unaffected by language. It can be used to evaluate almost anyone suspected of having ASD, from 1-year-olds with no speech to adults who are verbally fluent.

Stress is unavoidable in life. You need to set time aside to unwind or your mental and physical health can suffer. Managing stress takes practice and is needed for healthy living.
Ten ways to make it easier.
Exercising regularly is one of the best ways to relax your body and mind. Your mood will also improve. Doing any exercise is better than not doing any at all.
So how much should you exercise every week? 30-60 minutes daily

A few deep breaths help you feel better right away, once you get good at it. Just follow the following 5 steps:
Having a regular, well-balanced diet will help you feel better in general. It may also help control your moods. Your meals should consist of vegetables, fruit, grains, and lean protein for energy.

Talking positively to yourself can help reduce stress. You need to listen closely to what you are saying or thinking to yourself when stressed out.
If you are giving yourself a negative message, change it to a positive one. For example, don’t tell yourself “I can’t do this.” Tell yourself instead: “I can do this,” or “I’m doing the best I can.”
Accept that you can’t do things perfectly no matter how hard you try. You also cannot control everything in your life. So be realistic about yourself and stop thinking you can do so much. Keep up your sense of humour as laughter goes a long way towards making you feel relaxed.
Discover the biggest causes of stress in your life. If you are able to identify what they are, see if you’re able to eliminate them from your life, or at least reduce them. Keeping a stress journal to help you identify a pattern, and then find ways to remove or reduce the triggers.
