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.

Bam! Overnight Brad developed a stutter. A significant stutter. So on top of being speech-delayed and scripting, now Brad's got a stutter to overcome.

I have no idea if it's temporary or permanent, or typical or related to autism.

To be continued...

I wouldn't worry too much about the stutter just yet - it's just his brain working faster than his mouth.

I agree with kk, it is likely his brain working faster than his mouth.

My son, who is almost 10, does this, too, especially when he's really excited about something.

Thanks. I have an appointment with a developmental pedi in August to get an official second opinion. I'll be interested in what she has to say.
