Hello Mark, I have enjoyed your article and all the posts and debating as well. Although a label is helpful, getting to the issues is the real feat. I am always curious to the label (diagnosis) of an individual, but often put it aside - to focus on the issues that will help the individual become more functional. Just curious, where would a PWS with an ASD diagnosis fall in terms of labels? I work with individuals, mostly higher functioning folks with Asperger's Syndrome or High Functioning Autism, who have social thinking disorders, many of whom stutter. The first work I do with them is usually in the way they think about others, and introduce them to what others may be thinking about them.
