Post Changes to the DSM

So Asperger's is no more. Autism professionals* have long viewed Asperger's as mild autism, but for it to be official...it's interesting, that's all, *shrug.* I mean, the two were diagnosed by different people at the same time, or else they probably would've been the same thing all along, but I still find it interesting that they have actually been consolidated.

Also, cutting and binge eating have been added to the DSM as disorders.

*I teach little kids with severe autism, for what it's worth, lol.
