Autism Spectrum Disorders

Edited by Sally Ozonoff

This virtual issue brings together 12 articles published in JCPP from a half to more than two decades ago that presage the proposed changes in DSM-5 (in which five individual pervasive developmental disorder diagnoses are to be categorised as a single category of Autism Spectrum Disorder) and together provide a window into the empirical and conceptual forces that molded the revision and some of the issues that will remain yet to be resolved.
