In this study, caregivers of 396 Singaporean two-year-olds from a birth cohort study completed the Quantitative Checklist for Autism in Toddlers. Children’s gender, cognitive functioning and birth order, maternal age, and ethnic group membership were not significant predictors of caregiver-reported autistic traits. Poorer child language development and higher maternal depressive symptoms significantly predicted more social-communicative autistic traits, while lower maternal education predicted more behavioural autistic traits. Children’s language and informants’ educational level and depressive symptomatology may need to be considered in caregiver-reports of autistic traits. © 2018, Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.||Source Title:||Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/139802||ISSN:||01623257||DOI:||10.1007/s10803-018-3471-7|
