The American Psychiatric Association (APA) developed the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fifth edition (DSM-5), which is used as a standard reference for healthcare providers to diagnose mental and behavioral conditions, including autism spectrum disorder. The resource in this unit will provide information specifically about the application of this criteria for ASD.
