Autism Spectrum Disorder Chart. The autism spectrum (ASDs), comprises of 3 disorders: 1. Autism-[impaired social interaction, verbal & non-verbal communication, & by restricted & repetitive behavior], 2. Asperger syndrome, [lacks delays in cognitive development and language], & 3. pervasive developmental disorder, not otherwise specified (commonly abbreviated as PDD-NOS), which is diagnosed when the full set of criteria for autism or Asperger syndrome are not met.
