It has been over 10 years since the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM, has been updated and released in its fifth edition. There has been much anticipation and controversy over the many changes that have been incorporated, and among the most carefully scrutinized are those pertaining to autism spectrum disorder. Joining host Paul Rokuskie to discuss important DSM-V updates in the diagnosis and classification of autism are Dr. David Kupfer, Chair of the DSM-V Taskforce, and Dr. Catherine Lord of the Neurodevelopmental Disorders Workgroup.
