Abstract

Best practice dictates that the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnostic process is informed by experienced professionals from at least two disciplines, for example psychology or speech pathology, with the diagnosis ultimately provided by a specialist medical practitioner e.g. child psychiatrist, neurologist or paediatrician. Irrespective of a child’s age, diagnosis relies upon information about their early development. Current information and observations on a child’s behaviour, communication and socialisation are considered by the specialist medical practitioner against the signs and symptoms detailed in one of several diagnostic systems. Two recently used classification systems in Australia have been the fourth edition of the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) published by the American Psychiatric Association (1994) and the tenth edition of the International Classification of Disease (ICD-10), published by the World Health Organisation (2003).

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
