    Article - En anglais

    The present study examined the prevalence of comorbid anxiety symptoms in 44 children with pervasive developmental disorders.

    Parents of the children were interviewed using the Anxiety Disorders section of the Diagnostic Interview Schedule for Children.

    Results indicated that severe anxiety symptoms are highly prevalent in children with pervasive developmental disorders : 84.1% of the children met the full criteria for at least one anxiety disorder.

    Furthermore, 72.7% of the children displayed ritualistic behaviors.

    Implications of the findings are discussed.
