Identification, Evaluation, and Management of Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder

In the 12 years since the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) published the clinical report “Identification and Evaluation of Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders” and its companion, “Management of Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders,” reported prevalence rates of AAP ASD Clinical Report 2020 (ASD) in children have increased. Understanding of potential risk factors has expanded, awareness of co-occurring medical conditions and genetic contribution to etiology has improved, and the body of research supporting evidence-based interventions has grown substantially.

This updated clinical report builds on previous reports and guidance for care of children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
