Bad move ?
I do not think this move from Spectrum disorder to Spectrum (psychiatry) is optimal ... this is not a common search term, and the original name was more appropriate. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 10:20, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
- Problem with original title is phrases such as "autistic spectrum disorder" generally mean a disorder falling on the autistic spectrum, rather than a "spectrum disorder" that is called Autistic. A spectrum itself can involve a range of conditions, disorders, states and traits. The definition becomes convoluted when trying to define it as "spectrum disorder".

- I am responding to the question at WikiProject Medicine. I think that either name is acceptable, but that "spectrum disorder" is somewhat preferable. If people think the only spectrum disorder is ASD, then this article should enlighten them. WhatamIdoing (talk) 03:23, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
I propose renaming this article to Spectrum approach and then leading it with A Spectrum approach to mental disorders... Or in psychiatry or whatever. But the phrase seems to turn up Google hits including peer-reviewed literature, is consistent with some related terminology, and avoids having to commit the title to a particular field. I'll make the move in a while unless anyone is opposed. Eversense (talk) 05:13, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
- "Spectrum approach" doesn't seem to be a proper topic. Googling it returns nothing like this article. None of the references mention "spectrum approach" in their title. Is this original research? Bhny (talk) 17:20, 15 November 2014 (UTC)
