THE CDC has removed Asperger's Syndrome from it's new diagnostic book called the DSM V. They claim it is an attempt to get more people with autism the same services and better services but in Tom's opinion it is just an attempt to keep the autism numbers from skyrocketing out of control with so many people being diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. People with asperger's syndrome feel like taking away asperger syndrome from the DSM V is like taking away who they are. Taking away Asperger's Syndrome from the DSM V is like killing people who have Asperger's Syndrome. Many of us are taught to believe that Asperger's Syndrome is a big part of who we are and in some cases I know off people with Asperger's Syndrome who think that it is entirely who they are. People with Asperger's Syndrome feel intimidated and frustrated with this new idea of taking away Asperger's Syndrome from the DSM V. Tom shares that he has not received any additional help as the CDC said people with Asperger's Syndrome should receive under the new diagnoses of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Tom worries that taking away Asperger's is an attempt to deny services to people who are higher functioning more than it is to help more people get services. Read Tom's book to learn more about how taking away Asperger's from the DSM V has affected him and others with Asperger's Syndrome.
