Shah, P. J., Boilson, M., Rutherford, M., Prior, S., Johnston, L., Maciver, D. and Forsyth, K. (2022) ‘Neurodevelopmental disorders and neurodiversity: definition of terms from Scotland's National Autism Implementation Team’, The British Journal of Psychiatry (In Press).
Adults with neurodevelopmental disorders frequently present to, but fit uneasily into, adult mental health services. We offer definitions of important terms related to neurodevelopmental disorders through unifying research data, medical and other viewpoints. This may improve understanding, clinical practice and development of neurodevelopmental disorder pathways within adult mental health services.
