Petitioning American Psychiatric Association

Maintain the current definition of Autism


Under the proposed changes many will lose necessary services. The argument for doing this is that there are not systems in place to support the increased need of people that meet the current diagnosis. The individuals that will no longer qualify for services will still need the services but will not qualify to recieve them.  Due to the lack of services this will prevent them from living up to their full potential.  Please sign this position to show that you do not agree with these changes.
