But ASD and schizotypal PD will stay.


Then what would someone who would've been diagnosed with schizoid PD be diagnosed with in the new DSM?


I don't know exactly. I know that there exists a list how each trait is/can be interpreted in the next DSM. I personally think the best is to diagnostically reevaluate this person in this case again. But so far I know has been schizoid PD a very rare diagnosis in the past.

Social Communication Disorder, probably. Most schizoids will have social skills impairment as well as being aloof.
