The Diagnosis of Autism by State Agencies.
Vicker, Beverly; Monahan, Michael
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v18 n2 p231-40 Jun 1988
Information from all 50 states on agency diagnostic practices regarding autism revealed considerable variability between Departments of Public Instruction (DPI) and Departments of Mental Health (DMH). DPIs reported far more heterogeneous practices than DMHs. DMHs were more likely than DPIs to recognize autism by category and to sanction specific criteria. (JW)
