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.

Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family. I am a new reader of your blog and wanted to let you know how much I like it. If you don't mind, I would like to link your blog to my website: www.playtolearn.weebly.com.
I have several parent blogs linked, many of which have different perspectives. A recurring theme in my writings, as I also see in yours, is to respect what works for the individual. I don't think there is one cause of autism or one perfect treatment for everyone. I hope some day all of the name-calling and fact inventing will come to an end and we can work towards a common goal. Yeah, it reeks of Rodney King, but he had a good point!

Keep on keepin' on!

Hi! With a few clicks from blog to blog, I ended up at your site. I don't think I've ever read so many older entries of any blog I've stumbled upon as I did on yours. I like the way you think and your straightforwardness.
My boys have Fragile X Syndrome (different levels of mental retardation and autistic characteristics). They are 17, 15, and 2!
That Floortime therapy sounds interesting. For my boys, I've always thought that their best therapy when they were younger was being able to play with their sister, now 19, and the two children that I took care of for a couple of years (one our daughter's age, and the other was our older son's age). Our 2 year old does receive speech and developmental therapy, but how I wish he had the same playtime opportunities as his brothers had when they were little...or at least therapy that impressed me.

Jen, thanks and welcome. I saw the pics you posted - what a beautiful family you have. As for floortime, it's nice because it's child led. Brad loves it. And I totally understand what you mean about the sib socialization factor. It's really special.
