Eric Lipshaw, 21, a student at Oakland University in Rochester, Mich., is "110 percent" against the diagnosis change.

"I get disability support services, assistance on campus," Lipshaw said. "They give me a scribe for my handwriting -- that's illegible. They have note-takers and anything else we need."

Rodman, whose husband has Asperger's and Tourette syndrome, said people with the diagnosis and their fa
