Stop the Proposed Revisions to the Autism Spectrum Disorder

This petition had 152 supporters


The proposed revisions to the Autism Spectrum Disorder would eliminate high functioning ASD patients (PDD-NOS, Aspberger's and Childhood Disintegrative Disorder) from the Autism Spectrum. Which would mean many of those who have the diagnosis of PDD-NOS,Aspberger's, High-Functioning Autism, could lose the diagnosis. Which in turn would take away the services that are provided! Like social and school services, medical services, possible SSI. As a mother to 3 children with the PDD-NOS diagnosis, the changes could mean that all the help that is needed could be cut off! Which is not the answer!
