Autism. Recognition, referral and diagnosis of children and young people on the autism spectrum

These guidelines covers the recognition, referral and diagnosis of autism in children and young people from birth up to 19 years.

Autism spectrum disorders are diagnosed in children, young people and adults if these behaviours meet the criteria defined in the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-10) and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders DSM-IV Fourth Edition (Text Revision) (DSM IV-TR) and have a significant impact on function.
