Question?: Pdd

John asks…

Which states and school districts have the best services for a child with PDD-NOS?

My child was recently diagnosed with PDD-NOS. I am looking for resources or websites that can help in finding a GREAT school that can help my child. I am not worried about location at this time; I am just looking for a place to start. Thanks.

Question?: Pdd

David asks…

What would be common symptoms of PDD-NOS in a 1-year-old?

My daughter is 14 months old and was diagnosed with mild PDD-NOS by a psychologist. I was hoping someone can give me a list of symptoms a 14-month old might present that would give a psychologist the diagnosis of mild PDD-NOS. All symptoms I find online either talk about children 3 years plus, or talk about Autism.
I’m looking for a list of symptoms, like a checklist I can see for myself

Here’s a good link that should help you out. PDD-NOS is in the autism spectrum.

Get your daughter into a therapeutic play groups and when older, into a clinical pre-school. Many kids on the mild end of the spectrum will grow up okay if intervention happens early.
