What do you think about the changes in the DSM, Aspergers and PDD no longer exist, considered Autism now?
My 5 year old son was just diagnosed through UCLA. Our doctor explained to us that the Diagnositc and Statistical Manual 5 was coming out in May and UCLA has already switched over to that diagnostic criteria. If my son were evaluated under DSM 4 he'd be diagnosed Aspergers, because he was diagnosed under DSM 5 it's considered Autism. I feel like Aspergers so much better explains his situation, he does not have an intellectual deficit or speech delay. How are those of you with Aspergers or PPD diagnosis handling the change, will you switch over and say your child has Autism?
