Autism is a "spectrum disorder," meaning you can be a little autistic or very autistic. Until May, 2013, there were five "official" autism spectrum diagnoses,but the diagnoses within the autism spectrum weren't clearly named, nor were the symptoms always the same even within the same diagnosis. What's worse, terms like "severe autism," "mild autism" and "high functioning autism" aren't true diagnoses at all - they're just descriptive terms to help parents and teachers better understand a child's status on the autism spectrum.

Today, with the DSM-5, there is just one "autism spectrum disorder" -- and everyone is lumped under that single diagnosis. But that doesn't mean we've stopped using the older or informal terms! Welcome to the complex world of many autisms.
