Admittedly, I’m not an expert on the changes being made and I don’t own a crystal ball in order to predict how each person and family will be affected.
However, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that at least part of the motive behind these changes, is to curb an epidemic without actually addressing the problem.
Having said that, I do have one thing to say to those making these changes.
“By changing the definition of what Autism is, you’re not making anything better. Sure, fewer people will be diagnosed, but that’s only because you’re choosing to ignore the rest that are not as obviously affected by it”.
Maybe the change is needed but perhaps it should be put off until we better understand the impact these changes will have.
