This suggests that children like yours are actually more common than “typical” children with autism. If we now think that autism spectrum disorders are 15–30 times more common than we did a decade ago, a question naturally arises: Is autism increasing in frequency? Is it truly more common than it used to be, or do the rising prevalence figures simply reflect better diagnostic practices and increased awareness of the milder end of the continuum? The jury is still out. Two researchers, Dr. Lorna Wing (the same psychiatrist who first brought Asperger syndrome to the attention of the English-speaking world) and Dr.
Such developments are usually guided by a desire to advocate for children and help them obtain services, but in the process they exaggerate the prevalence of the disorders. If highfunctioning autism spectrum disorders become the ADHD of the new millennium, we will certainly see prevalence estimates increasing, although not necessarily due to an actual increase in the frequency of the disorder. All autism spectrum disorders are much more common in males than in females; this was recognized by both Leo Kanner and Hans Asperger and has been validated by numerous studies since then.
This study found that most of the children labeled with PDDNOS who didn’t have any specific symptoms related to autism or Asperger syndrome fell into two categories: those with general language or learning problems and mildly delayed social skills and those with hyperactive, distractible, highly disorganized behavior. In both cases, clinicians felt that other diagnoses (for example, mental retardation, ADHD) underestimated the severity and pervasiveness of the disturbance, so they diagnosed the child with PDDNOS even though the child did not actually meet diagnostic criteria.
