I found out yesterday that Asperger's is being removed from the DSM-V, and being merged with the autism spectrum.

Discuss!

Heard about this recently too. I like it. I think there's a lot of weird stuff people associate with the word "asperger's" at this point and I like "mild autistic traits" better. I'm just more comfortable with that label on a personal level. No complaints here.

Hmm, a little late. :wink:
There are masses of discussions on this here already - check out the General Autism Discussion forum or the Autism Politics, Activism, and Media Representation forum.
