Adaptations culturelles des outils dits de diagnostic des troubles du spectre de l’autisme chez l’enfant et l’adolescent

Abstract : Diagnostic tools for Autism Spectrum Disorders are increasingly used as a help to diagnosis by clinicians. As such they are constantly updated and improved to be as discriminating as possible. The aim of this systematic review is to identify the diagnostic tools that have been adapted for use in cultures different from that in which the were developed. Beforehand we offered to emphasize some cultural specificities that must be considered et to expose some traditionals explanatory models. Then to evaluate the quality of the cultural adaptation process, to report on the psychometric properties of the adapted instruments and describe the implications for further and clinical practice. A total of 20 articles met criteria for inclusion, reporting on the cultural adaptation of 4 tools in 15 countries and 14 languages. The cultural adaptation process was not always correctly described and did not systematically follow the recommended guidelines. The more rigourous was the adaptation process the more there were cultural and/or linguistic modifications. Differences between the psychometric properties of the original and adapted versions were common but according to the authors did not invalidate the use of the tool in the target population.
