The diagnostic criteria for Asperger Syndrome (AS) according to ICD-10 and DSM-IV have been criticized as being too narrow in view of the rules of onset and precedence, whereby autism takes precedence over AS in a diagnostic hierarchy. In order to investigate this further, cases from the DSM-IV multicenter study who had been diagnosed clinically with AS were assigned to appropriate DSM-IV/ICD-10 diagnostic categories. The analysis indicated that 11(23%) cases would be reassigned a diagnosis of… Expand
An epidemiological and diagnostic study of Asperger syndrome according to four sets of diagnostic criteria.
TLDR
The results emphasize the need to reconsider the diagnostic criteria of Asperger syndrome, and the need of several informants was highlighted, especially when diagnosing the broader pervasive developmental disorders. Expand
Comparison of Diagnostic Methods for Asperger Syndrome
TLDR
The aim of this study was to compare four diagnostic sets of criteria for Asperger syndrome: the ICD-10, the DSM-IV, the Gillberg & Gillberg, and the Szatmari criteria. Expand
Confusion and inconsistency in diagnosis of Asperger syndrome: a review of studies from 1981 to 2010
TLDR
The widely used criteria for diagnosing Asperger syndrome in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)-IV are suggested to be insufficient and invalid and to be of relevance for designing intervention studies aimed at the treatment of specific symptoms in people with an autism spectrum disorder. Expand
from 1981 to 2010 Confusion and inconsistency in diagnosis of Asperger syndrome : a review of studies
This paper presents a review of past and current research on the diagnosis of Asperger syndrome (AS) in children. It is suggested that the widely used criteria for diagnosing AS in the Diagnostic andExpand
Qualitative or Quantitative Differences Between Asperger’s Disorder and Autism? Historical Considerations
  • James L. Sanders
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Journal of autism and developmental disorders
  • 2009
TLDR
Based on up-to-date empirical research, it appears that AD and autism are not qualitatively distinct disorders, but are different quantitative manifestations of the same disorder. Expand
Autism spectrum disorders : an epidemiological and clinical study
TLDR
The results indicate the need to standardize the diagnostic criteria for ASDs and suggest the ICD-11 criteria should be uniform and harmonize with DSM-5. Expand
Treating clients with Asperger’s syndrome and autism
TLDR
Although the focus of the present paper is largely on Asperger’s syndrome, many of these strategies could also apply to individuals with high-functioning autism (HFA). Expand

Language and communication difficulties are central to Asperger Syndrome/Disorder (AS) and Autistic Disorder (AD), two pervasive developmental disorders classified in the Diagnostic and StatisticalExpand
From Kanner to DSM-5: autism as an evolving diagnostic concept.
TLDR
An overview of changes in how the condition is conceptualized over the past two decades is provided, beginning with a brief discussion of the significance of classification in general before discussing Kanner's original paper and subsequent changes. Expand
Utility of the Asperger Syndrome Diagnostic Scale in the Assessment of Autism Spectrum Disorders
TLDR
The ASDS appears most useful in cases of either low or high scores or as an adjuvant to gold-standard measures and Receiver operating characteristic analyses indicated Area Under the Curve in the fair range. Expand

Field trial for autistic disorder in DSM-IV.
TLDR

TLDR
Findings are consistent with those of 5 other studies and indicate that a DSM-IV diagnosis of Asperger's disorder is unlikely or impossible. Expand
Comparison of clinical symptoms in autism and Asperger's disorder.
TLDR
Clinicians appear to be diagnosing AsD and AD on the basis of published research and case study accounts, and the findings question whether DSM-IV and ICD-10 criteria adequately describe the AsD individual, particularly in the communication domain. Expand

TLDR
The sex ratio, family history, and presence of neurologic disease in some Asperger's Syndrome cases, suggest that the etiology of the disorder is similar to that in autism. Expand

TLDR
Examining the four cases Asperger originally presented in his seminal paper, using DSM-IV criteria to determine whether a diagnosis of Autistic or AsPerger Disorder is most appropriate, found that all four cases met DSM- IV criteria for Autistic Disorder, rather than Aspergers Disorder. Expand

TLDR
It is argued that rather than thinking in terms of rigid diagnostic categories, it should recognise that the core syndrome of autism shades into other milder forms of disorder in which language or non-verbal behaviour may be disproportionately impaired. Expand

A simple system of subgrouping based solely on a description of the type of social impairment will be used, which avoids the confusion inherent in trying to identify the named syndromes. Expand
