Hi there, I am getting my 13 year old son tested soon but I have a dilemma. The doctor will only diagnose per the DSM 5 and says there is no high functioning autism or Asperger’s. But all the help I am receiving from this site seems to help him and makes total sense on how my son acts. Should I try to find someone how can address high functioning or is this just not possible because it’s not in the DSM5? I am afraid if he is not diagnosed on the spectrum that we won’t get the help we need for school. Thoughts?
