About this blog.

My son was diagnosed with PDD-NOS at 24 months. I created this blog to bring meaning to the often-confusing label. Sometimes I have answers. Other times, just more questions.

Update

  • Brad is identifying colors consistently.
  • He's mastered the shape sorter, although he does it entirely with his left hand.
  • We've added 2 more hours per week of OT, bringing his total service hours to 14.5 per week.
  • In the last week, his play has become more rigid. Also: he's flapping his arms and toe walking a little.

Cool! As big and strong as he looks to be growing up, maybe a pitcher? After all, lefties have always had a reputation of being somewhat 'flaky' or 'unusual.' Might a 98 MPH fastball be in his future? Hmmmm.... and the number 1 pick in the MLB draft was an 18 yr old left handed pitcher who signed a multimillion dollar contract.

My son was recently diagnosed with ASD and is 'high functioning'. Diagnosis was one week ago today and he is 23 months old. I feel like you could answer some questions for me if you have a few moments.... MAINLY questions about therapies and types and what you've learned. Can you email me at scottandbriana@hotmail.com ? If we converse over email, you can just get back to me when you have a moment here and there. I would greatly appreciate it as I have entered the phase of TOTAL CONFUSION!!! I am enjoying reading your blog and plan to keep trucking down it so I can catch up. Sounds like our sons have A LOT in common!!!!! How old is he now? Thanks! Briana from NC
