DSM-V

As a librarian, books are very important to me and one in particular, the DSM-V (or Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition) is one that plays a role within the autism community.

With the release last year of the 5th edition, much was made of how it would effect those with autism and while it’s no longer in the news much these days, there is a nice article about it over at the Autism Speaks website. It’s entitled “DSM-5 & Autism: Autism-Speaks Study Clarifies Impact of New Criteria”.

Sincerely-

Autism Librarian
