Abstract

Results of this small pilot study indicate good agreement (71%) between pediatrician judgments and independent diagnostic ASD evaluations, but a significant trend toward overidentification when a diagnostic decision is forced. We discuss the implications of this study with regard to revisiting traditional service models of diagnostic assessment for young children with ASD.
