Gabriel Meyer, Remote Clinical Lead Manager at Center for Autism & Related Disorders (CARD), unpacks a nuanced question posed by a confused mom of an 11-year-old son who wrote to Shannon Penrod of Autism Live.
This episode answers this mom’s question about her son “…with a lot of issues…” and about being directed to get an Asperger’s diagnosis – a dx that technically no longer exists as an official diagnosis under the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition: DSM-5 (DSM-5).
It’s all just so confusing, right? This discussion answers some of the basic issues of entry into Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis and offers some support strategies. There is also discussion about Amy Schumer and her husband, Chris Fischer, who rocked the autism world when they boldly and publicly discussed autism and Chris’ late-in-life diagnosis.
