Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) as a diagnosis was not included in the DSM-5. Instead the current diagnosis would be Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). I’ll use the terms Asperger’s and autism interchangeably in this blog. The diagnostic differences for the two can be very thin at times or very stark depending on the individual. In my case I just consider myself to be autistic. Hopefully this won’t cause any confusion.
