DSM-V Asperger's Syndrome Does Not Exist Anymore
by Travis Breeding
In 2013 the DSM-V was released. This time Asperger's Syndrome has been excluded form the DSM-V all together and is now lumped under the term Autism Spectrum Disorders. Asperger's Syndrome will no longer be a medical diagnosis. A disorder that was first introduced in the DSM-IV has now been excluded entirely from the DSM-V. For many adults living with Asperger's this has been hard to swallow.
