Autism Spectrum Disorders - Pervasive Developmental Disorders

About the Course:

This report goes beyond an earlier NIMH publication on autism by including information on a range of pervasive developmental disorders, including Asperger’s syndrome. Disorders are described symptomatically, behaviorally, and systemically. Information is also included on diagnosis and treatment, as well as where one can get additional information. Excellent resource for therapists, educators, and families.
