Atypical autism is a type of autism that may go undiagnosed for years. Parents who suspect autism but find that their child does not have many of the common autism symptoms should learn the characteristics of atypical autism. Since this type of autism is easily missed, it is important for parents to recognize symptoms and seek treatment. Early intervention provides the best chance for a healthy and productive life for all children with autism.

Atypical Autism Overview

Atypical autism is a neurological disorder that affects social behavior, language development and creative expression. This type of autism may occur at a later age than most cases of autism. An affected child commonly does not show autism symptoms until after age three. Individuals do not have a number of common autism symptoms, which is why it is called atypical.

Atypical Autism or PDD-NOS?

Atypical autism is the old term for pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS). The American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorder, Fourth Edition, Revised Text (DSM IV-TR), refers to atypical autism as PDD-NOS. The DSM describes the autism spectrum disorder as pervasive development disorders (PDD) and breaks it up into five PDDs. PDD-NOS is one of five neurological disorders that includes autism, Asperger's syndrome, Rett syndrome and childhood disintegrative disorder.
