  • Editor in Chief: Fred R. Volkmar, Director of the Child Study Center of the Yale University School of Medicine
  • Associate Editors: Michael D. Powers, Rhea Paul, Kevin Pelphrey
  • Contributors: Leading scholars, researchers, and clinicians in autism
  • Offers a foundation of broadly based topics across the broad expanse of autism, pervasive developmental disabilities (PDDs) and related intellectual disabilities
  • Hyperlinks from Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders articles in both PDF and HTML formats lead interested readers to broader coverage across the encyclopedia entries
  • Serves as a reference repository of knowledge for the field as well as a conduit of information from leading research before it trickles down to the standard textbooks
  • Offers an extensive cross-referencing system that will facilitate the search and retrieval of information

This major reference work breaks new ground as an electronic resource for students, educators, researchers, and professionals. Comprehensive in breath and textbook in depth, the Encyclopedia of Autism Spectrum Disorders serves as a reference repository of knowledge in the field as well as a regularly updated conduit of new knowledge long before such information trickles down from research to standard textbooks. The Encyclopedia consists of 5 volumes and approximately 1,500 entries divided by the major conceptual areas of ASD and PDDs, including:

- Research trends and findings
- Behavior/speech
- Communication
- Treatments
- Education

Taking advantage of the techniques offered by the electronic medium, the Encyclopedia of Autism Spectrum Disorders offers an extensive cross-referencing system facilitating search and retrieval of information.
