Re: 3yr old son diagnosed 'At Risk' for Autism- PDD nos
My son is 2.5 and was given a diagnosis for PDD nos and Disruptive Behavior Disorder.
He screams all day long, there is no rhyme or reason to it... he screams cause he is happy, sad, mad, and just for the heck of it. He has a very small vocabulary, but he seems to understand a lot.
We've been dealing with this scream for nearly a year and a half. We found out at 18 months that he was nearly deaf... which explained why he wasn't really speaking... at the time, but a year has passed, his hearing has improved and his vocabulary hasn't improved where I want it. According to Drs, he is a 2.5 year old with the function of a 1.5 year old. He's quite clumsy as well. I hope someone on here has some ideas to at least get him to quiet down a little.
