The diagnostic criteria change periodically. It must be

remembered that autism falls on a spectrum, ranging from very

serious cases to very mild. Everyone is different. The three most

commonly discussed types of autism are classic autism, Asperger's

disorder and PDD-NOS, which stands for pervasive developmental

disorder-not otherwhise specified.
