my boys were diagnosed with PDD-NOS when they were 20 mths old. they are 26 mths now and getting EI. of course i've done my research and read possibly every website they have on autism. just about all of the things i have found say that a child doesn't get diagnosed until age 3 or 4 or 5. so do you think they are too young. dont get me wrong i definitely know they have it, all the signs are there. but why would it say a child cant be diagnosed until that age but then my boys have gotten a diagnosis already.
also, i have heard people say PDD-NOS is not autism. i know what it stands for and all that and i know the meaning behind it, but if it is on the spectrum then why is it not considered autism?
