A growing body of research has raised concerns about the number of individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) according to DSM-IV-TR who may no longer qualify for diagnoses under the new DSM-5 criteria, published in May 2013. The current study systematically reviews 25 articles evaluating samples according to both DSM-IV-TR and DSM-5 ASD criteria. Consistent with previous reviews, the majority of included studies indicated between 50 and 75 % of individuals will maintain… Expand
Comparing Rates of Diagnosis Using DSM-IV-TR Versus DSM-5 Criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
Examining differences in the application of diagnostic criteria across both recent versions of the DSM suggests that there are meaningful differences in how DSM criteria may apply to individuals with an ASD. Expand
A Prospective Study of the Concordance of DSM-IV and DSM-5 Diagnostic Criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
Sensitivity and specificity were strongest for children meeting DSM-IV criteria for autistic disorder, but poor for those meeting criteria for Asperger’s disorder and pervasive developmental disorder, and higher IQ, older age, female sex, and less pronounced ASD symptoms were associated with greater discordance. Expand
An evaluation of the clinical application of the DSM-5 for the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder
TLDR
This paper reviews the major changes to diagnostic criteria from DSM-IV-TR to DSM-5 and emphasizes how these changes are hypothesized to impact prevalence rates, as well as trends in characteristics of individuals who would have met previous criteria for ASD but no longer qualify for a diagnosis under DSM- 5.

Brief Report: Investigating the Implications of Applying the New DSM-5 Criteria for Diagnosing Autism Spectrum Disorder in a Preschool Population in Singapore
TLDR
The overall concordance rate of ASD diagnosis on the DSM-IV-TR and DSM-5 was higher than that reported in other studies. Expand
A Meta-analysis of DSM-5 Autism Diagnoses in Relation to DSM-IV and DSM-IV-TR
This appears to be the first meta-analysis study which has incorporated articles on the percentage of people with a Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-Forth Edition (DSM-IV) autismExpand
Evaluating the rate of Social (Pragmatic) Communication Disorder in children at risk for Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
Given the high proportion of at-risk youth with social communication impairment, it is essential that interventions be developed and made more readily available to individuals both with and without diagnoses of ASD. Expand
Diagnostic Utility of the ADI-R and DSM-5 in the Assessment of Latino Children and Adolescents
TLDR
Evaluated whether an ADI-R algorithm based on the new DSM-5 classification for ASD would be more sensitive in identifying Latino children of Spanish speaking parents who have a clinical diagnosis of ASD, suggesting that the DSM- 5 algorithm shows better sensitivity than theDSM-IV-TR algorithm for Latino children. Expand
Comparison of DSM-IV-TR and DSM-5 Criteria in Diagnosing Autism Spectrum Disorders in Singapore
TLDR
The DSM-IV-TR performed slightly better than DSM-5 when applied concurrently against the best estimate clinical diagnoses for 110 children referred for diagnostic assessments of Autism Spectrum Disorder in a Singaporean outpatient speciality clinic, and more participants with a PDD-NOSbest estimate clinical diagnosis were misclassified on DSM- 5. Expand
Factors associated with DSM-5 severity level ratings for autism spectrum disorder
TLDR
The strong associations between intelligence quotient and DSM-5 severity ratings in both domains suggest that clinicians may be including cognitive functioning in their overall determination of severity, and further research is needed to examine clinician decision-making and interpretation of these specifiers. Expand
How has DSM-5 Affected Autism Diagnosis? A 5-Year Follow-Up Systematic Literature Review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
A 5-year follow-up systematic review and meta-analysis to determine change in frequency of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosis since diagnostic and statistical manual 5 (DSM-5) publication and explore the impact of Social Communication Disorder suggests smaller decreases in ASD diagnoses compared to earlier reviews.

TLDR
Concerns are raised that the new DSM-5 criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorder may miss a number of children who would currently receive a diagnosis, who had significantly lower levels of cognitive and adaptive skills and greater autism severity but were similar in age. Expand
Comparing Symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorders in a Developmentally Disabled Adult Population Using the Current DSM-IV-TR Diagnostic Criteria and the Proposed DSM-5 Diagnostic Criteria
The American Psychiatric Association is making changes in the autism spectrum disorder (ASD) criteria for the Diagnostic andStatistical Manualof MentalDisorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5). In order toExpand
Application of DSM-5 criteria for autism spectrum disorder to three samples of children with DSM-IV diagnoses of pervasive developmental disorders.
TLDR
Compared with the DSM-IV criteria for Asperger's disorder and PDD-NOS, the proposed DSM-5 ASD criteria have greater specificity, particularly when abnormalities are evident from both parents and clinical observation. Expand
The effect of DSM-5 criteria on the developmental quotient in toddlers diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder
TLDR
Toddlers diagnosed with an ASD according to the DSM-5 were found to represent a more impaired population compared to those who qualified for a diagnosis of an ASD based on the DSM -IV-TR, but not theDSM-5, which will likely result in those diagnosed with the new criteria representing a more functionally impaired group.

Brief Report: Comparability of DSM-IV and DSM-5 ASD Research Samples
TLDR
Utilizing combined ADOS/ADI-R data, 93 % of participants met DSM-5 criteria, which suggests likely continuity between DSM-IV and DSM- 5 research samples characterized with these instruments in combination. Expand

Comorbid psychopathology rates in children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders according to the DSM-IV-TR and the proposed DSM-5
TLDR
Investigating differences in comorbid psychopathology rates between individuals who meet criteria of Autism Spectrum Disorders according to DSM-5 or the DSM-IV-TR elucidate the need for further research regarding services and treatments for those individuals that will no longer meet criteria for an ASD but still have significant rates of comor bid psychopathology.

Redefining Autism Spectrum Disorder Using DSM-5: The Implications of the Proposed DSM-5 Criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorders
TLDR
High-functioning individuals (i.e., Asperger’s disorder and PDD-NOS) were less likely to meet DSM-5 criteria than those with autistic disorder, and a failure to satisfy all three criteria in the social-communication domain was the most common reason for exclusion. Expand
The Effects of DSM5 Autism Diagnostic Criteria on Number of Individuals Diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Systematic Review
A systematic review of empirical papers comparing the application of DSM-IV and DSM5 diagnostic criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorders identified 12 papers. The application of DSM5 diagnosticExpand
A comparison of DSM-IV pervasive developmental disorder and DSM-5 autism spectrum disorder prevalence in an epidemiologic sample.
TLDR
It is suggested that most individuals with a prior DSM-IV PDD meet DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for ASD and SCD; extant diagnostic criteria identify a large, clinically meaningful group of individuals and families who require evidence-based services. Expand
