AUSM - Autism Society of Minnesota - Autism diagnosis criteria changes go into effect today

www.ausm.org [cached]

"In my opinion as a practicing psychologist, there is no need for anyone to panic about the DSM-5 criteria," said psychologist Barb Luskin, Ph.D., L.P. "The new criteria would make at most a small difference in how I have diagnosed over the past 10 years. I cannot think of anyone I know who has a diagnosis under the DSM-4 who would not also meet the DSM-5 criteria."

Luskin, a licensed psychologist with the Autism Society of Minnesota, has provided assessments and counseling for children and adults with ASD for more than 30 years. She believes it will take several years to assess the impact of the new DSM-5 criteria.
According to Luskin, most programs in Minnesota provide services to people with disabilities based on severity of individual need rather than a diagnostic code.
"There is concern about how to classify individuals who have the characteristics described in either DSM-4 or DSM-5, but who do not need additional support to function well," Luskin said.
