The term incorporates diagnoses previously described as separate: autistic disorder, Asperger's Disorder, childhood disintegrative disorder, and pervasive developmental disorders not otherwise specified. This comprehensive book on ASD will be a valuable resource for parents, caregivers and health professionals as well, with its combination of years of practical experience and a range of skills and knowledge from its outstanding author team.
