Hi everyone! I'm very frustrated with the developmental ped. that we have seen for our 4 year old daughter. She told us that our daughter only meets 3 of the autism criteria so therefor doesn't have autism (which we already guessed) but also doesn't have PDD-NOS. She said that with PDD-NOS a child usually meets all the criteria for a, b, c or d but doesn't qualify as having autism. I thought PDD-NOS was that a child has some autistic qualities but doesn't meet all of the criteria. Am I making sense?
Our biggest issue is her aggression to other kids and failure to read their cues on when to stop her behavior. She has major explosion and tantrums in which we aren't sure what causes them, sometimes you just look at her and she starts screaming. We have other issues but these are our biggies. I have tried for over a year with dealing with these things and I no longer know what to do. The dr. had no help to offer except that she a a developmental delay socially and ADHD. I'm not convinced of this.
Any thoughts from those of you experienced with PDD-NOS. I'm asking our reg. ped. for a 2nd referral to another dev. ped.
