Example text

The boundaries between autism spectrum disorders and conduct disorder/ODD are, by no means clear.

The ‘take-home’ message is that Asperger syndrome, high-functioning autism and other autistic-like conditions can, and do, exist alongside any other disorder. 3 Prevalence Population studies The rate at which Asperger syndrome occurs in the general population has only been the subject of a few studies, the majority of which have been concerned with school-age children and performed in the Nordic countries.
