This chapter provides the reader with a succinct record of early pioneering advances in the field of autism and a retrospective look over some of the theoretical systems that have been proposed over time. It also provides the rationale that leads to our current understanding of the criteria and diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in the development of DSM up to the current DSM-IV-TR. Proposed DSM-5 changes are also discussed.
