CDC Grand Rounds on Autism & the DSM5 — Hashtags of the Week (HOTW): (Week of April 28, 2014)

Pic of the day - Puzzles

I had a half page long list of hashtags I was thinking about using for this week. And then I stumbled into the end of the #CDCGrandRounds on autism and the new DSM. I had read about the NIH seeking public comments on the impact of the DSM5 on autism diagnosis. This is because of concerns that the shift in how to diagnosis is resulting in a decrease in diagnoses resulting in people not getting needed services. That derives from the DHHS IACC report: IACC Statement Regarding Scientific, Practice and Policy Implications of Changes in the Diagnostic Criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorder. That’s pretty intense. So when I saw the CDC was having a Grand Rounds on the topic, live streaming it, with an active Twitter back channel, and then a followup Twitter chat the next day also sponsored by the CDC (#AutismPHGR – Autism Public Health Grand Rounds), well, how very interesting! If you look at WHO was tweeting, it reads like some sort of Who’s Who on the topic. Very interesting indeed. I hope you think so, too.

  1. Prroblem: Something wrong with your attachment? I tried to watch it both from here and from the direct tweet, and the sound did not work on either. (Yes, I tried everything I knew.) So, last resort, I ScoopedIt! and got sound.


  2. FYI The sound is muted on this and your other postings of it and I could find no way to unmute it. In desperation I curated it to Scoopit! and there it worked. Mary
