WST = Wortschatztest, a German vocabulary test to measure verbal intelligence; AQ = Autism-Spectrum Quotient; ADOS-2 = Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule 2; ADI-R = Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised. For ADI-R, an autism diagnosis is indicated when scores in all three behavioural areas meet the cut-off scores (social interaction: 10, communication and language: 8 and restricted and repetitive behaviours: 3). For ADOS-2, the cut-off for an “autism spectrum” diagnosis is 7 and the cut-off for an “autism” diagnosis is 10
