The M-CHAT-R/F (Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers, Revised with Follow-Up) is a fast, accurate, free screening tool for developmental and behavioral problems in children from 16 – 30 months. It is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics as the autism screening tool and uses the parents’ own assessment of the child’s behavioral problems, and when used with the follow-up interview identifies developmental concerns warranting evaluation in 98% of toddlers who screen positive.

Effective August 1, 2014, AHCCCS providers who are appropriately “certified” can be reimbursed for performing the MCHAT at the 18 and 24 month well child examinations.
