Clinical characteristics of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and intellectual disability (ID) overlap, creating potential for diagnostic confusion. Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders (DSM) criteria that best differentiate children with ID and some ASD features from those with comorbid ID and ASD were identified. Records-based surveillance of ASD among 8-year-old children across 14 US populations ascertained 2816 children with ID, with or without ASD. Area under the curve (AUC… 
Differential Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder Versus Language Disorder in Children Ages 2 to 5 Years: Contributions of Parent-Reported Development and Behavior
TLDR
Differences in parent ratings of social withdrawal and development of social and self-help skills may facilitate differential diagnosis of ASD and LD in children ages 2 to 5 years.
Differential Diagnosis in Children with Autistic Symptoms and Subthreshold ADOS Total Score: An Observational Study
TLDR
Results showed that in order of frequency and early diagnosis, communication disorders (CD), mild intellectual disability (mID) and the attention deficit hyperactivity disorders (ADHD) represent the most common final clinical diagnosis in children with autistic traits.
Age of Autism Spectrum Disorder Diagnosis and Comorbidity in Children and Adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
Significant correlations were found between the age of ASD diagnosis and self-injurious and stereotyped behavior and the role of comorbidities in relation to ASD diagnosis.
Time Trends in Diagnostics and Clinical Features of Young Children Referred on Suspicion of Autism: A Population-Based Clinical Cohort Study, 2000–2010
TLDR
Clinical trends in the period 2000–2010 suggest that a higher proportion of children with less severe autism symptoms were referred and diagnosed, and restricted and repetitive behaviors seemed to be a key discriminating factor when distinguishing between ASD and no-ASD children with a discordant symptom profile.
Autism spectrum disorder and its differential diagnosis: A nosological update
TLDR
The objective of this review is to sensitize mental health professionals and clinicians for the varying clinical presentation of ASD, key differentiating features from other disorders, and updating diagnostic criteria as per recent nosological advances, as timely diagnosis and early intervention is significant for long term course and prognosis.
Comparing Observations and Perceptions of Mother-adolescent Conflict: Youth with Typical Development, Intellectual Disability, or Autism Spectrum Disorders
ABSTRACT Introduction: While transitioning to adulthood presents challenges for youth with developmental disabilities (DD), opportunities to develop adult social roles and communication skills may
A framework for an evidence-based gene list relevant to autism spectrum disorder
TLDR
This Roadmap discusses important considerations necessary to provide an evidence-based framework for the curation of NDD genes based on the level of information supporting a clinically relevant relationship between a given gene and ASD.
Gross motor function and health fitness in adults with autistic spectrum disorder and intellectual disability: single-blind retrospective trial
TLDR
It is indicated that exercise programs could provide similar effects, even with other disorder types having similar symptoms, after analyzing the exercise program performed by adults with intellectual disability (ID) or autistic spectrum disorder (ASD).

Detecting Autism Spectrum Disorder in Children With Intellectual Disability: Which DSM-IV-TR Criteria Are Most Useful?
TLDR
Diagnostic criteria related to impaired social interactions, stereotyped or idiosyncratic language, poor conversational skills, lack of pretend and imitative play, and restricted or narrowed interests were related to ASD diagnoses.
A Comparison of Social Skills Profiles in Intellectually Disabled Adults With and Without ASD
TLDR
The results support the notions that social impairment remains a distinct feature of ASD in adults with ID, that autism and PDD-NOS are two conditions on the same spectrum, and that this spectrum is relevant for adults withID.
Autism in adults with severe intellectual disability: An empirical study of symptom presentation
TLDR
It appears that adults with ID and autism evince a distinct pattern of impairment when compared to controls with ID alone.
A Comparison of Adults with Intellectual Disabilities with and without ASD on Parallel Measures of Challenging Behaviour: The Behavior Problems Inventory-01 (BPI-01) and Autism Spectrum Disorders-Behavior Problems for Intellectually Disabled Adults (ASD-BPA)
TLDR
Individuals with ASD demonstrated higher levels of overall challenging behaviour and especially with regard to self-injurious and stereotypical behaviours, consistent with previous research.
Maladaptive and Repetitive Behaviors in Children With Down Syndrome and Autism Spectrum Disorders: Implications for Screening
TLDR
Children with DS + ASD were reported to exhibit more problem behaviors than children in the DS group (without ASD) as well as more self-absorbed behaviors and poorer social relating, and implications for screening and assessment of autism symptoms in children with DS are discussed.
Using the ADI-R to diagnose autism in preschool children
TLDR
The use of an investigator-based interview in the diagnosis of 51 autistic and 43 nonautistic mentally handicapped preschool children of equivalent mental and chronological age is described, and significant differences occurred between the groups on every diagnostic subdomain from the DSM-IV/ICD-10 draft criteria.
Comparison of DSM-III-R and childhood autism rating scale diagnoses of autism
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to clarify the issue of whether DSM-III-R over- or underdiagnoses autism by comparing this diagnostic system to a well-established objective measure of diagnosis, the Childhood Autism Rating Scale (CARS).
