From the Archives of General Psychiatry ~ June issue

"According to a study in the June issue of Archives of General Psychiatry,
An autism diagnosis given to a two-year-old child is likely to hold true when that same child is nine years old.
On the other hand, a diagnosis of PDD-NOS (pervasive development disorder not otherwise specified) in a two-year-old child is more likely to be reclassified as an autism diagnosis or a diagnosis of Asperger’s syndrome or other ASD spectrum disorder. "
