 Autism is a complex disorder the lasts a lifetime.  It will never go away.  It can be managable with early diagnosis and services provided.   1 in every 110 people are diagnosed with Autism.  Autism is more commonly found in boys, however girls may also suffer from this disorder.  Autism is not found in just one race, ethnicty or specific social group.  It is not contained to one country it is world wide.  Symptons can ranges from very mild to extremely severe.  

Autism is an impairment in communication skills, social abilites and repetitive behaviors.  Autism can be reliably diagnosed by the age of 3 years old.  However most parents can usually see it earlier by the way their child developes, by not hitting the developmental milestones on target as they should.

These DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) changes that are being proposed will remove atleast 2 of the diagnoses from the spectrum, leaving many lost and confused. The 2 spectrums that are begin targeted are PPD (Perassive Development Disorder) and AD (Aspergers Disorder).

The proposed changes to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental disorders(DSM) will potentionally affect 1.5 millon children and adults.

These changes will potentinoally leave most of these children and adults without the necessary services they need to funtion during a typical daily routine.  Should these people not be able to get services what will happen to them?  Will they be left in the dark without services that is needed for them to become part of a typical society?
