  1. Hello! Yes, I received ethical approval in August from our University Research Ethics Committee and I'm at London South Bank University
  2. I'm really sorry to hear you're feeling like this. Asperger's Syndrome was removed from the DSM in 2013. If your doctor still uses the ICD-10 rather than the DSM-5, a diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome is still possible, but the DSM-5 now only warrants diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder rather than more a specific diagnosis like Asperger's Syndrome or PDD-NOS. You can still get help for ASD, it's just that the labels have changed and therefore the way it's dealt with may be slightly different
  3. New to this site :) hello everyone

  4. Hi everyone, I'm a 21 year old girl with Asperger's Syndrome, and was diagnosed when I was about 7 years old. The symptoms have affected me my whole life I'm now in the final year of my degree, studying BSc Psychology in London, which brings me onto my dissertation subject. You may or may not be aware (I only found out 6 months ago) that Asperger's Syndrome was removed from the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) in 2013, so it doesn't exist as a diagnostic category anymore. I would like to interview individuals aged between 18 and 25 who were diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome before the age of 16, so please let me know or send me a message if you might be willing to take part. If you don't want to take part in the study and you just want to say hello and chat then that's fine because I'm here for that as well Thanks for reading
