To date, the average child with ASD is accurately and completely diagnosed only in adolescence.

  • Determine the multiple factors which confound accurate diagnosis
  • Identify those behaviors that compromise and distinguish various disorders
  • Evaluation methods designed to aid differential diagnosis
