"Dr. Lynn Waterhouse @autismideasfail 6 Sep h ttp://bit.ly/17WbZVi     #autism  gene AUTS2 tied to dyslexia ADHD epilepsy ID motor delay microcephaly MORE SYMPTOMS should be part of ASD DX"

The above Tweet by Dr. Lynn Waterhouse, author of Rethinking Autism: Variation and Complexity who also worked with Dr. Lorna Wing on the APA DSM-III-R diagnostic criteria for autism,  should be read by any existing DSM5 committee members charged with developing modifications to DSM-5 diagnostic criteria. The DSM-5 has doubled down on the failed approach of simplifying autism contrary to solid evidence and research. 

Dr  Waterhouse's tweet comment on the study  Function and Regulation of AUTS2 , a Gene Implicated in Autism and Human Evolution suggests to this humble father of a son who suffers from  severe Autistic Disorder (DSM-IV), profound Intellectual Disability and epileptic seizures, including two recent Grand Mal seizures, suggests as does her thorough, well researched Rethinking Autism text that the DSM-5 is taking autism disorders down the wrong path, a path that will cause serious harm to autistic children and adults and to the research necessary to develop successful evidence based interventions for autism symptoms and disorders.
