Autism spectrum disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder causing an abnormality in one’s social, communication and behavior. It is diagnosed based on early-emerging social and communication impairments and the tendency to behave differently than would a normal child. The global statistics reports an increase in the total statistics from year to year. The main question shed light in this article is “What are the existing autism screening tools that have the correlation with autism intervention?”. For this objective, a methodology based on a systematic review is done to identify the existing type of autism ‘screening’ and intervention. The article search is done from early 1990s to the current year and involves peer-reviewed journals. It is important for parents to seek for early assistance if their child shows symptoms of being autistic. The screening process is essential because early detection of autism may lead to early intervention further enabling a child’s abilities to be improved. Various screening tools accessible online should be able to tell if a child is autistic. More research should focus on the autism screening process and tools to prove to the public about the reliability of certain available screening tools. The objectives of the research are achieved. A lot of information has been obtained throughout this literature review regarding autism screening and intervention. The instruments used in the screening process are typically inexpensive and simple to administer, score, and interpret. The evaluation of the screening measures is based on sensitivity and specificity. Conclusively, early screening is important because it may contribute to early intervention which will increase the possibility of an autistic child having a better future. There should be more research conducted on autism screening itself and the benefits of having an intervention especially in terms of the social and behavior outcome and family relationship. It is hoped that some information regarding autism can be disseminated to the public and further actions such as screening can be done by parents who are concerned about their child development
