“On the Spectrum”
Individuals vary greatly from one another on the “spectrum.”
“Autism” comes from the Greek: “aut(o)”=self + “ism”: a state
1911: “Autism” used by Bleuler to mean active withdrawal into fantasy by schizophrenic patient
1919: Kraeplin: “Autistic personality”: “(They) reduce external interests and…[are notable for] their preoccupation with inward ruminations (precursor to schizoid personality).”
1943: Kanner: “Early Infantile Autism”: failure to develop relationships, lack of imagination
1944: Hans Asperger, Viennese physician: identified a pattern of lack of empathy, difficulty forming friendships, absorption in a special interest, and clumsiness. (Translated by Lorna Wing in the U.K. in 1983)
1950’s: Use of childhood schizophrenia, autism, and childhood psychosis as interchangeable (Laufer and Gair, 1969)
Asperger’s: Higher prevalence
intelligence with one focused interest.
Autistic (6 or more from 3 below, with 2 from Social Interaction and 1 from Communication, 1 from Restricted below):
5) Effects of Dimensional Assessment on differential diagnosis of autism spectrum disorders:
A] Anxiety: HFA: low
B] Mood: HFA: often depressed
C] Affect: HFA: stable, constricted
LFA: labile; self-stimulation/mutilation
D] Substance use: HFA: very low
LFA: very low
E] Sleep disturbances: HFA: cycles
LFA: very changeable
2) Restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, and activities, as manifested by at least TWO of the following:
a. Stereotyped motor or verbal behaviors, or unusual sensory behaviors
b. Excessive adherence to routines and ritualized patterns of behavior
c. Restricted, fixated interests
3) Symptoms must be present in early childhood (but may not become full manifest until social demands exceed limited capacities)
4) A child with autism could not also be diagnosed with ADHD.
