I stumbled on this last night. It was SO EXCITING to read.
Do you know what this means?
This means finally, FINALLY Woodchuck could have a REAL diagnosis that is recognized by the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders,) a REAL ICD-9 code that distinguishes him from having Autism or any Autism Spectrum Disorder because he does not meet the criteria for autism at all!
While he would need a sedated MRI for this diagnosis, I would be okay with that if it means he would truly get the help and attention he needs. Please let this research continue, let it be recognized and respected. Let it help my beautiful, brave boy!
