Can you share more information about this? It point me in a direction? I have a conference with DS pediatrician in a week and ill have to ask about this.
Its just going to be autism spectrum disorder. They have new diagnosic criteria as well.

They feel it will weed out 10 percent of misdiagnosed cases but potentially open up services for children that have not been diagnosed.

I like the new change as it adds in sensory disfunction where it didnt before.
