What does Non-psychotic Delusional Disorder mean? I thought that having a delusion is a form of psychosis.

It's very confusing to me.

There was a study that it is common for a lot of people with ASD to have a non-psychotic delusion. What do they mean by non-psychotic delusion?!

I don't find that very helpful on how they deal with with delusion that is cor-morbid with ASD, because according to Harvard Medical School, a Delusional Disorder is classified as a psychotic disorder and for National Library of Medicine to group delusion as non-psychotic in ASD, does not make sense to me and it is not the right way to deal with delusion that is common with ASD. And it makes me believe that symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder does include traits of thought disorder that is overlooked by medical studies.


Sources that I don't agree with how to deal with a delusion in ASD:

A source that I agree with the most is:

For example, if you type 'Delusional interests and repetitive behaviors' by doing a Google search, it will give you results that is related to ASD only. This suggests to me that delusion is very common with ASD and it keeps me thinking that if ASD is actually a form of early childhood type of Schizophrenia that is caused by genetics, environmental or external factors. Because calling ASD delusion as non-psychotic is not helpful and it just makes me wander if ASD is a form of of transit psychotic disorder with history of communication delays. And I also wander if ASD is a precursor to Schizophrenia later on.
