So I guess it’s official. The next edition of the DSM will remove all Autism subtypes (Childhood Desentagrative Disorder, Asperger’s, ect).
When we were at the Cleveland Clinic last week continuing to look into a CDD diagnosis for Gavin, we were told that the diagnosis essentially doesn’t matter because pretty soon it will no longer exist. Plus there is no treatment so it really serves no practical purpose.
So my question is, what how do you feel about the removal of Autism subtypes? Everything will just be considered Autism, at least as I understand it. What are your thoughts on this and how do you think it will impact your life of the life of your child?
Don’t be shy, your opinion is important and I would love to hear it.
