There are the catigories A,B,C,D,E,and F. Do you have to meet A and B, and does C pertain to both? For example, my son would meet criteria for A. (2)Failure to develop peer relationships appropriate to developmental level and it does cause clinicaly signifigant impairement to his social functioning (C). But the PhD has already told me none of the other things on A apply. So he actually doesn't meet criteria for A.
On B. (3) He will flap his hands, say if an airplane flys over, after pointing it out. But just for a second. Clearly that doesn't cause any clinical signifigant impairment to his social functioning. So no C for B.
A zillion Thanks
