The new guidebook, DSM-5, contains significant changes to the criteria currently used to diagnose autism, including incorporating several diagnoses into the single diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). AACAP crafted a list of Frequently Asked Questions to help families who have a child with autism understand the impact of these changes.
In addition, we updated the Fact for Families on Asperger’s. For more information, visit AACAP’s Autism Resource Center.

AACAP also created a new Facts for Families on the new diagnosis Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (DMDD).
