This paper considers a practical overview of the diagnosis and management of autism spectrum disorders, a group of neurodevelopmental disorders typified by childhood autism. It will focus primarily on the presentation of pre-school and school-aged children, as these children often first present to paediatricians in the pathway to care. Reference is made to recent national guidelines for assessment and management, and more controversial aetiological aspects are discussed.
