Recommendations: DSM-5 ASD Criteria Analysis

Note: This post will be regularly updated (and stickied) until all linked posts are completed, at which point this note will be removed. UPDATED: Oct. 30/12 @ 20:50 NDT.

Additional Note: Due to the fact that I’m not sure when it will be updated again, I’m removing the “sticky” until further notice.

And we’re back again with Unstrange Mind, who is doing all of us the favour of going through the DSM-5 Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnostic criteria, and analysing it in terms of what it means both for those who are already diagnosed (even though we’re grandfathered in), and those who will be looking for a diagnosis. (Note: Frankly, based on her analysis and just what the criteria says, I fit even better in the ASD diagnosis than I did in Asperger’s! I may have said that before, but it bears repeating.)

Her analysis is not yet finished, but (as mentioned in the top note), I will continue to update as it progresses. However, I thought it was important enough that I want to start getting it out now.

Here we go:

More to follow as they are posted. This is a highly recommended set of posts, and I encourage everyone who has any interest in ASD and what the criteria is to read them.
