Hi Everyone

Just wanted to introduce myself - I am a mom of 2 - my boy is 9 and PDD-NOS. He actually got the diagnosis a few years ago, but I am only now seeking out support as I am just realizing that PDD-NOS IS something I am entitled to receiving support over. (when my son got diagnosed, the developmental psychologist pooh poohed my feelings that my son had Aspergers and essentially made PDD NOS sound like nothing). I can't tell you how good it is to read some of the posts, realize there are other moms out there who have gone what I've gone through with my precious boy (sensory integration issues, speech delay, socialization challenges up the wazoo!), and that I am not insane! We're an Arizona family, so if anyone has any good social skills resources in the Phoenix area, feel free to holler.

Nora -


I hear you sister! It's so wonderful for me to have found a board like this one...for the first time in , um, well, FOREVER, I feel like someone gets what I'm talking about when I describe what I've been through with my son.
