Hi everyone! My name is Kim and I am the mother of two beautiful children. My 3 year old ds was just recently diagnosed (finally!!) with PDD. I am relieved to know that I was not going crazy in my own evaluations of him and that a professional has reassured me that every behavioral intervention I have been doing so far is right on target.
A little about ds: I started noticing changes in Tony right around the age of 2, but thought that his anti-social violence towards other kids was just part of the terrible two's and that he was "all boy". A few months after that I was sitting in a class on mild/moderate disabilities and my professor began talking about the different disorders on the autism spectrum. Suddenly a light bulb went on and I knew where to turn to. We received the application to be considered for evaluation on his third birthday and just a week ago it was confirmed. The psychologist said he is borderline asperger's, but because he is so young she was going to label him as PDD-NOS and re-evaluate him around 7 years old to see if Asperger's would be more appropriate then.
Glad to meet some other parents of ASD kids and see what stage of life each of you are at and how you are dealing with the wonderful little quirks and challenges of life. :-)
