So stop using the word. It's just autism.
Um, yeah, I think you may be wrong.
Lmao, love it! :)
there are different forms of autism, they all affect people differently.
We all know this. However, aspergers is not a diagnosis anymore.
Quoting Mashnut3161: there are different forms of autism, they all affect people differently.
No, it's not lumped together. It's DELETED. It's not in the DSM 5
Quoting Yogamom08:How does it effect you in any way? It is still a usable and legitimate term, it is just lumped together in Autism Spectrum Disorder.
I personally think this is a big mistake. While they are all on the same scale there are such extremes that the differentiation really helped
Using the R word in an autism post? How tasteless.
