This symposium presents the tasks carried out for the development, translation and adaptation of detection, assessment and diagnosis tools related to the autism spectrum, parental stress of families and school socialisation.

Among these tools we highlight the ADEC (early detection instrument). This level II instrument has been adapted to Spanish with the nuances of the population of Guayaquil (Ecuador). This is a tool developed in Australia and with

validation in a Hispanic population (Mexico) and is administered by observing the child's behaviours.

the child's behaviours.

The PSI-4 in its long and short version has been translated with the permission of the authors and copyright owners to create the official version that will soon be published by TEA.

The ESB (Early Sociocognitive Battery) is an observation scale that allows both detection and differentiation between Autism Spectrum Disorders and pragmatic communication disorders.

Finally, the Sociometric Online questionnaire was born out of the need to prevent and detect socioemotional difficulties and the presence of bullying or problems in peer relationships at an early stage.
