In 2013 DSMV the term Aspergers Syndrome has been replaced with ASD – Autistic Spectrum Disorder.  It is crucial to consider this is a spectrum and there are many people who are high functioning managing their day to day lives well be it that they have adapted some of the traits or characteristics they have.
