<p>Is there a final word about SPD and the DSM-5?  I know that it won't be published until 2013, and I know they have stopped accepting comments.  I have read about other changes that will come with the DSM-5, but I can't seem to find whether they accepted SPD or not.  Does anyone here know more?</p>

<p>The initial decision was "No," because the committee thinks more research is necessary, but they accepted more comments from the public. SPD is still on the short-list of disorders nominated by outside agencies, so I believe it's still  formally under consideration.</p>

<p>I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think any diagnostic criteria for SPD were given out for use during the field testing of the new criteria.</p>
