Autism definition changes, creates concern

According to a new definition of autism put out by the American Psychiatric Association, it may be more difficult for some with the disorder to be diagnosed. The new criteria could also make it harder for those in Georgia and elsewhere with autism to get Social Security disability benefits. Those with loved ones who have autism are worried about how the new definition will affect their friends and family members.

More rural residents relying on SSDI

This also comes at a time when unemployment remains high, and budget-conscious lawmakers are worried about Social Security being tapped out for future generations.

A disability can change a person's life without warning. Whether caused by an accident or the sudden onset of a disease or illness, having a disability impacts a person's health, finances and livelihood.
