Autism Spectrum Disorders

  • The most important thing is:  CATCH IT!
  • Do the M-CHAT.
  • Check at 12, 15 and 18 months.
  • DSM-V:  broadened the definition of Autism Spectrum Disorders, folding Asperger’s into the ASD diagnosis.
    • This mainly serves to (hopefully) make it easier for ASD children to get diagnosed and get plugged into resources earlier.
