Diagnosing autism spectrum disorder among children in Norway

Sammendrag

BACKGROUND:The percentage share of children who are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder has increased considerably since the 1990s in Norway as well as in other countries. It has previously been demonstrated that there is considerable variation between counties with respect to diagnostic practice. MATERIAL AND METHOD:We calculated the percentage of children with autism spectrum disorder by using patient data obtained from the Norwegian Patient Registry and population data obtained from the National Registry. The calculations were made for the country as a whole as well as by county. The diagnostic assessments and documentation were mapped by linking the Norwegian Patient Registry with the Norwegian Mother, Father and Child Cohort study. We also reviewed patient records obtained from the specialist health service and considered whether diagnostic practice satisfied the research criteria for autism spectrum disorder. RESULTS:By the age of eight, 1.1 % of boys and 0.3 % of girls had been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. The overall percentages varied from 0.3 to 1.0 between counties. From 2008 to 2016, these percentages increased in all age groups. Our review of patient records included 503 children. In 95 % of cases the patient records provided a high standard of documentation that the diagnostic research criteria had been satisfied. The assessments were largely conducted in accordance with the guidelines drawn up by the various health trusts. INTERPRETATION:Autism diagnoses are generally well documented within the Norwegian specialist health service and meet the diagnostic criteria. In the counties that demonstrate a low prevalence of autism, it appears the health service fails to recognise autism in many children, particularly girls, or the diagnosis is determined late.
