Asperger's Debate Over

I'd heard it was being debated but they finally got it approved.

On Saturday they officially dropped the term Asperger's syndrome from the new addition of the DSM that will be out in May. It will be interesting to see if or how this impacts students who are currently eligible for special services under this category and if there are any practical changes that we see in the schools. These children may still qualify under the category of Autism, or may not depending on the nature of their disability.
