He published a paper entitled "Epidemic of False Diagnoses of Autism "
Does anybody know if he is credible?

We already have a thread about his accusations about "over dx by 70 percent".

No. According to the below sources, David Rowland is a charlatan.

His main grift is quack nutrition. https://quackwatch.org/11ind/rowland/
He has now got into autism "research".

This.

It seems unlikely that his claims are anywhere close to being true.
