The studies described in this thesis are the first to investigate the use of diagnostic and language tests developed in the western world in an Arab autism clinic. This chapter will provide contextual information and will begin by giving a historical overview of the developments in diagnostic criteria, and clinical and language assessment methods that followed Kanner’s first description of autism in 1943. Research findings that have informed our current understanding of language abilities in autism in the western world are discussed. Finally, prevalence and methods of autism assessment in the Arab world will be considered and the aims of the thesis will be described.
