In 2013, the American Psychiatric Association stopped using the clinical term Asperger’s syndrome, grouping the condition with other forms of autism under the term ‘Autism Spectrum Disorder. Consider Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) just like a pie. Each cut of a pie is a pie there are four pie’s of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) known as Classic Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, PDD-NOS, CDD

Various Types of Autism Spectrum Disorder
CLASSIC AUTISM:
ASPERGER’S SYNDROME:
PERVASIVE DEVELOPMENTAL DISORDER, NOT OTHERWISE SPECIFIED (PDD(NOS))
CHILDHOOD DISINTEGRATIVE DISORDERS (CDD)
