Pandabaire is right on the money. I am the proud mom of a 12 year old boy who's been diagnosed as having Autism/PDD but is on the high funtioning end of the spectrum. While I knew early on that something wasnt right, it did take some time before I could find a doc who would actually listen to my concerns about my son's development. He continues speech therapy, occupational and physical therapy, is mainstreamed in school (He made high honor roll 2 quarters in a row!
and is making huge progress in meeting social goals. Remember that you are your child's voice so if you think there are services he needs, and he's being denied them, keep after these docs. If they wont listen, look for one who will. It can be a very frustrating and trying time, but in the end, I can assure you, it is very much worth the time and effort. I wish you the best! Chelley
