Social Responsiveness Scale – Second Edition (SRS-2)

The Social Responsiveness Scale – Second Edition (SRS-2; Constantino & Gruber, 2012) is a 65-item questionnaire used to assist in the screening and diagnosis of autism.

Overview

The tool can be completed by parents/caregivers or teachers who are familiar with the student. Questions are rated on a 4-point Likert scale. The purpose of the SRS-2 is to reveal a wide range of symptoms from subtle to more pronounced. The test provides an overall score and five treatment subscales that can be used for program planning in the areas of: Social Awareness, Social Cognition, Social Communication, Social Motivation, and Restricted Interests and Repetitive Behaviors. Two subscales, Social Communication and Interaction and Restricted Interests and Repetitive Behaviors, are designed to be DSM-5-compatible.
