It explains that, in order to fully understand the disorder, one must learn about the disorder, how common it is, how it affects development, how it affects learning, what treatments are available, and what effects it has on the family as a whole. After understanding these details about autism, those who work with those who have the disorder are better equipped to make the greatest impact.

From the Paper:

"The developmental disorder, Autism is a complicated disorder and can become very confusing to those who have incorrect information or simply do not have the basic facts. Autism is commonly referred to as a "spectrum disorder" or "Pervasive Developmental Disorder" (PDD). The disorders that are classified under this spectrum include Autistic Disorder, Pervasive Developmental Disorder - Not Otherwise Specified, Asperger's Syndrome, Rett's Syndrome and Childhood Disintegrative Disorder. The word "spectrum" is used due to the severe differences of symptoms and function levels. Those with a spectrum disorder can have any combination of symptoms with varying levels of the symptoms. The development disorders defined under the PDD category, while all having a separate diagnosis, often times it can be extremely difficult to clearly determine one's diagnosis within the spectrum."
