As someone with (Albeit minor) autism I'm certainly concerned that other people with autism will no longer be getting the help they need. On the other hand I'm also glad for more specific criteria since now not all abnormalities in a person can be treated as autism and as such those of us who actually have it will get the help. In saying that I'm not even positive I fit the new criteria and I have to tell you I'm fairly certain I have autism (and yes I'm actually diagnosed, not self-diagnosed).
I don't need a quote, I need pie.
