If a person has asperger's, are they considered autistic?
Yes it's high functioning autism.
Aspergers in on the Autism spectrum. So yes.
So will the diagnosis only be autism of some degree? Seems like taking it out would eliminate a lot of confusion.
Quoting peanutsmommy1:When the DSM V comes out, aspbergers will actually no longer be a diagnosis, but as of now it is considered on the autism spectrum
