spectrum disorder (ASD) has had an increasingly high
profile over the last 10 years since the passing of the Autism Act
2009 (England and Wales). It is relatively common in the population
and even more so in psychiatric clinics. It may present differently
in some groups.
This module aims to give you further
understanding of how to diagnose someone with ASD, the criteria and
what they mean in practice.
