A Cross-Cultural Examination: Parents Reporting Symptoms of Autism in South Korea and United States

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability in the United States; as many as 1 in 110 individuals could be diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Countries around the globe are conducting epidemiology studies to learn more about the rates of autism worldwide. Although countries are working on understanding how many people in the population have autism, researchers tend not to assess the cultural factors that influence people’s understanding about autism, attitudes about autism, and reporting of symptoms. The accepted standards for diagnosing autism are the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) and the Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R). The ADI-R is administered to the main caregiver or parent regarding a child from 18 months until adulthood (Lord, Rutter, & Le Counteur, 1994). These assessments have been translated into over thirty languages across the world. This study examines the ADI-R in the Korean (n=292) and United States (n = 164) population. Specifically the study applies a shortened version of the English ADI-R to the Korean population to determine if the Korean children still meet criteria (DSM-IV and ICD-10) for autism. A cross-cultural examination of the items in the brief ADI-R will enable researchers to determine if there are any cultural differences in parent’s reporting of symptoms.
