it is definitely overdiagnosed. my research is bringing me to estimates that a third of children suffer from aspergers. that kind of numbers mean there is no disorder in most of these people, it is just a new personality description. and what did we expect from generations raised communicating primarily through electronic devices?
Here is an interesting fact, when your child is the one they are trying to put the label on incorrectly- the public schools collect additional annual grant money for every kid they can push into special ed, and this is america, where profit comes before anything else, like safety, rights, or self-esteem. this is a big contributor to the massive spikes in diagnoses for any of the fad childrens disorders.
