The more multi-faceted the disorder, the more difficult it is to develop precise diagnostic criteria. As Lorna Wing eloquently wrote, “Recognizing patterns within this bewildering complexity is akin to classifying clouds” (1998, p. 11).

Although they might show the same difficulties as more handicapped people with autism in the triad of impairments (social interaction, communication, and restricted patterns of behavior; Wing & Gould, 1979), these deficits are usually more subtle and can be difficult to identify.
