Classification of Pervasive Developmental Disorders: Some Concepts and Practical Considerations.
Rutter, Michael; Schopler, Eric
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v22 n4 p459-82 Dec 1992
This essay notes the complexities inherent in classifying pervasive developmental disorders (PDD), especially when a single classification scheme is to be used for clinical, research, and administrative purposes. The paper considers principles of classification, symptomatology, the neuropsychiatric interface, the value of a multiaxial approach, and PDD subcategories. (Author/JDD)
