I think I'm going to be so glad I finally found an active board supporting parents of those with PDD's.

oh my, i could have written your post! my son is 7.5 & dx on aug 19. w/pdd-nos,anxiety/ocd,adhd, & we already knew about the sensory stuff, w/possible learning disabilities. hopefully you are able to find the support, tangible & emotional, you need. My MIL & DH both went straight to denial/angry, upset that 'i had him dx', on & on & on...

Rachel,

I completely understand what you mean. DS was 8 when we got the diagnosis and it was a tremendous relief - hurrah, it was something realy, my gut instinct was rigjt, and it wasn't down to our parenting - and also some anxiety - this meant it would never go away, or get better, or be 'grown out of. Quite a few people did understand - we have a few psychologists, social workers and teachers amongst our friends - but also a lot, particularly family, didn't. We had to educate a lot of people, and still do. Even professionals and teachers.

Welcome to the board. It's a bit slower here than it used to be, but it still a good place to find people that 'get' it.
