Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder which is present from birth and is typically diagnosed in the first few years of life ( Matson & Boisjoli, 2008; Matson & Wilkins, 2008 ). Additionally, many problems have been found to co-occur with ASD ( Matson, Dempsey, & Fodstad, 2009a; Matson & LoVullo, 2009; Matson & Rivet, 2008; Matson, Rivet, Fodstad, Dempsey, & Boisjoli, 2009d; Smith & Matson, 2010a,b,c ). Ever since ASD was first described in the 1940s, researchers have noted that children with ASD may possess widely varying degrees of development across domains, but all possessed notable deficits in social and communication skills ( Asperger & Frith, 1991; Fodstad, Matson, Hess, & Neal, 2009; Kanner, 1944 ). Through all historic variations of ASD diagnostic and categorical criteria, defining symptoms have included varying degrees of deficiencies in social skills and communication as well as restricted interests, activities, and behaviors (e.g., hand flapping, preoccupation with objects, and rocking; Matson & Dempsey, 2008; Matson, Dempsey, & Fodstad, 2009b; Matson & Wilkins, 2009 ).</P>Revised criteria for ASD diagnosis have directly affected reported prevalence rates of ASD with sequential publication of each DSM edition ( Fombonne, Quirke, & Hagan, 2009; Matson
