In the wake of the recent massacre, there are concerns over Asperger’s Syndrome being removed from the DSM-V as its own mental illness…
“The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Psychiatry, published by the American Psychiatric Association, has come under fire recently because of its controversial decision to drop Asperger’s syndrome from its newest edition, which will be published in May 2013.
“Instead, Asperger’s will be lumped into a general umbrella term of “autism spectrum disorder.”
“This means people with Asperger’s, a mild, but high-functioning type of autism, may lose out on the services and treatments they need to function within society.” – FoxNews
