What is your child's diagnosis? When was he or she diagnosed?
My son was diagnosed on January 3, 2011, as either having Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) or Autism Disorder. We just began the process of having him go through a more thorough evaluation to determine exactly which one (or if they think he has a different one). I'm leaning more towards PDD, because the symptoms don't seem to be strong enough for AD. But hey, that's why I'm the mom and not a professional. :)
My son was Dx at age 6. We knew way before that he had issues, but the Dr said he was premature and immature, he would grow out of it! It wasn't until he was in Kind. that the school had him evaluated. He is Aspergers!
my SD has been diagnosed with a handful of Dx including Bipolar, ODD, ADHD, ADD & Depression. She is 6, as of yet between all of the specialists and doctors she has seen and does see no 2 can agree on exactly what is going on.
My son was dxed ADHD at 5. Then in 4th grade he had a neuro psych eval and was dxed with Aspergers. He is very mild and does well in social situations most times.
@ 2 1/2 mild speech delay and S.I.D. at 3 PDDNOS, pos. adhd @ 4 finally got a autism diagnosis.Then six month later Dev. ped questions Her own diagnosis and says this is atypical autism, as he gets older he will definitely look more like aspergers. What is this telling us about labels? lol............
My son was diagnosed with PDD NOS at 18 months, I had him evaluated because I noticed he was handflapping.....He attends an Early Intervention Center everyday 2 hours each day and also has therapy everyday including ABA, OT & Speech. he is doing so very well, I am so proud of him. Still no speech tho but he has progreesed wonderfully in many other areas, and the sounds are coming alog nicely.
Thaddeus was diagnosed with classic autism at the age of three.
My 13 yr odl DS has several DXs. PDD-NOS, SPD, mild anxiety, severe ADHD, and mild/moderate MR. He was Dx'd at the age of 10 for the PDD_NOS and at 5 for the others.
I have 2 children on the spectrum.
My 6(in 9 days) yr old daughter has Aspergers and was diagnosed at age 4.
My 4 yr old son has Autism.
It is very interesting to have two children on opposite ends of the spectrum, to say the least:) I have one all day sensory seeking child and one sensory avoider. It makes for some fun times in our house.
My 6 year old son has Austism Spectrum Disorder. Has sensory issues and behavioral problems also.
