"Moreover, there have been revisions of the specific criteria for a diagnosis of ASD in order to make it more precise and reliable. Such changes have been made due to the growing number of evidence showing that differentiation between PDD–NOS, AS, and other forms of ASD are not properly made (Huerta et al., 2013; Lord et al., 2012). For example, impaired social interaction and reduced communication have been integrated into one category, and restricted and repetitive behaviors were retained as the second category of symptoms needed for diagnosis of ASD (Barton et al., 2013).

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: In the lead up to and following the recent publication of the DSM-5, the diagnostic construct of autism has received intense scrutiny.
This article briefly reviews the history of the diagnosis of autism, the changes that have occurred in the diagnosis over time, and the rationale for change. The most significant changes being introduced with the DSM-5 are highlighted, as well as some of the concerns that will be a focus of attention with respect to the potential impacts going forward.
The categorical divisions that characterized the pervasive developmental disorders are now collapsed into a single entity, autism spectrum disorder. The final DSM-5 criteria have yet to be formally compared prospectively against prior criteria, but early indications suggest that the boundaries around the pervasive developmental disorders have not been substantially altered.
