DSM-5

I received a request this week to sign a petition protesting the proposed changes to the DSM-5 (see previous blog post titled Redefining Autism). That petition can be found here:


https://www.change.org/petitions/dsm-5-committee-dont-reduce-the-criteria-for-an-autism-spectrum-condition-in-the-dsm-5


The page lists some of the arguments againt redefining autism. For some perspective on the argument in favor of the changes, check out the following articles, the first of which appeared as an Op-Ed in today's New York Times:
