In this chapter, we help you find your way by explaining the specific diagnostic criteria for Asperger syndrome, high-functioning autism, and related disorders, including similarities and differences. We’ll tell you how a diagnostic evaluation is conducted and how diagnostic decisions about your child should be made; we will also discuss conditions sometimes confused with autism spectrum disorders. The Diagnostic Bible: DSM-IV The diagnostic process varies from agency to agency and from professional to professional.
In fact, the DSM acknowledges this truth by including a “Not Otherwise Specified” (NOS) diagnosis within every type of disorder (for example, someone might be diagnosed with mood disorder NOS when he shows some symptoms of depression but does not meet full criteria for the disorder). In general, all NOS diagnoses in the DSM are reserved for those whose symptoms are atypical or fall below the threshold for other diagnoses but who are experiencing significant impairment and distress. 34 The Diagnostic Process When PDDNOS is diagnosed accurately, it clearly falls on the autism spectrum.
No studies on their prevalence in children have yet been conducted, but they are thought to be relatively common, especially by adolescence. Professionals who are evaluating and treating children who may have AS-HFA have to tread a fine line between overdiagnosing many disorders and failing to spot true comorbidity. Children with AS-HFA often can’t help in the diagnosis of a co-occurring condition because their self-awareness is limited and they have poor insight into their own emotions, difficulty reading their own and others’ mental states, and limited ability to talk about abstract concepts.
