From professional experience, I wrote extensively in 2012 about Autism Spectrum Disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, and the roles played by parents and practitioners in helping kids and adults with these diagnoses live smoother and happier lives. An index of all these writings is within the link at the end of this post.

Changes are in place for the American Psychiatric Association’s DSM-V manual to be released in May 2013. These changes may be good or bad, depending upon who is paying attention.

The association’s website accepted discussion and public suggestions about the proposed changes for ASD, Apberger’s and other conditions in the diagnostic manual.

Many people that might have benefited did not take advantage of the opportunity to express an opinion or a suggestion, but many others did so. Now, the media chimes in with the prediction that 75% of Aspberger’s clients will lose benefits and educational classroom help. It’s simply not true. Read all about it at:
