Asperger (1944) described the isolative behaviors in children and referred to this as autistic psychopathology. However, these were children who had acquired language within the normal time span for development of speech. Children with autism who develop communicative speech are now referred to as cases of Asperger syndrome or High-functioning autism.
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association (1994), DSM-IV, includes autism and Asperger syndrome within the category "pervasive developmental disorders" (PDD).
