The original version of this article unfortunately contained two labelling errors in Fig. 3 and Figure S4.

The first error relates to the labelling of one of the items in domain A2. This is currently labelled as ‘Non-verbal communication is absent or odd’ but should read ‘Use of body language in social interaction’. This error is also present in Figure S4.

The second error is the use of # to denote A2 items for which only current scores are specified by the DISCO. This sign has been erroneously associated with those A2 items for which both ‘current’ and ‘ever’ scores are specified (the corrected item ‘Use of body language in social interaction’, ‘Eye contact poor’, ‘Makes brief glances’ and ‘Using other people as mechanical aids’), and should instead be noted next to the other items within that section.

The corrected Fig. 3 is given below and the updated Supplementary Materials including the corrected Figure S4.

The percentage of adults and children for whom each DSM-5 item was ‘ever’ present. * denotes items in the ‘signposting’ set; # denotes items for which only current scores are specified by the DISCO
