I have posted the DSM IV diagnostic criteria for autism on the Health Page.
You can access that by clicking the Health Page icon on the top right hand corner of this page.
Then click on Behavioural Characteristics Behind a Diagnosis of ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorders).
Under each category of the diagnosis criteria parents have posted examples of their childs behaviour to give you an idea of what the professionals are looking for when they observe a child.
