There is a good topic page about autism in Credo Reference.  You can get there by going to databases A-Z at  Once you are there, choose "C" and then click on Credo Reference.  You will be asked to login using your six digit student ID number and the first part of your Brenau email address.  Just enter the search term autism and your first result is a good general start.  I'm going to email you separately the DSM-V pages on autism spectrum disorder in case you need the American Psychiatric Association's definition of autism.  You can see how to cite the DSM-V if you choose to use the source here:
