Harris, Sandra L.; Glasberg, Beth; Ricca, Donna
School Psychology Review, v25 n3 p308-15 1996
Describes pervasive developmental disorders (PPDs), which are severe conditions that begin in early life and influence multiple areas of development. Conditions include autistic disorders, Asperger's disorder, Rett's disorder, childhood disintegrative disorder, and PPDs "not otherwise specified." Intensive behavioral intervention at an early age improves the developmental trajectory. The school psychologist has a vital role in diagnosis, assessment, and classroom consultation for children with PDDs. (Author/JDM)
