Table 4 Feasibility

From: Systematic review: cultural adaptation and feasibility of screening for autism in non-English speaking countries

The feasibility of screening
1. Acceptability: Do study’s participants perceive an appropriateness or suitability for screening for ASD within the intended culture and context?
2. Demand: Do study’s participants express a need and/or intention to use the screening instrument within current practice?
3. Implementation: Was the screening process implemented as proposed?
4. Practicality: Does the study report the cost, time and other resources required to screen for ASD?
5. Adaptation: Does the study adapt the screening instrument for the intended population culture?
6. Integration: Does the study highlight the possibility of integrating the screening instrument within the existing system?
7. Expansion: Does the study perceive any opportunity to expand the use of screening within a different population in a different setting?
8. Limited efficacy: Does the study report limited efficacy of the screening and/or its instruments?
