Summary
This page provides information for parents on Asperger Syndrome, discussing its history, symptoms, and common misconceptions.
Please note that the DSM-5 replaced Asperger Syndrome and other Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDDs) with a single category of "Autism Spectrum Disorder." However, DSM-IV classifications may still apply to individuals diagnosed with autism prior to 2013.
Autism Speaks is an international advocacy organization "dedicated to advancing research into causes and better treatments for autism spectrum disorders and related conditions both through direct funding and collaboration; increasing understanding and acceptance of autism spectrum disorders; and working toward solutions for the needs of individuals with autism and their families across the spectrum and lifespan through advocacy and support."
