I have been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, a High-Functioning form of Autism in which there is no notable delay or deficit in speech or cognitive abilities. I never had a delay in either one (I was even an early talker). I heard that Asperger Syndrome will not be on the Autism Spectrum in the DSM-5. Does that mean that Asperger Syndrome is going to be a completely separate disorder with a some of the same characteristics as Autism, or does it mean that Asperger Syndrome will not be in the DSM-5 at all.
