  Abstract:  

The first part of the paper will explore the problematic aspects in the methodology of developmental neuropsychological research as it is employed in the clinical, ecological-rehabilitative and theoretical domains, with an emphasis on the problems related to the investigation of atypical developmental trajectories. Issues related to the validity and utility of such an assessment, despite the inherent difficulties, as well as methodological strategies ensuring more viable inferences will circumscribe the discussion regarding the methodological controversies in developmental neuropsychology. The second part will embody the general aspects presented so far in the search for cognitive-behavioral correlates of the particular developmental trajectory pursued by autistic individuals.

Key-Words: developmental neuropsychology, methodology, validity and utility
