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.

Hey all,
Sorry for the infrequent updates.

Brad is doing well. Progress continues to be slow but steady. It's like we had a language explosion from age two through 2.5 years, but from 2.5 through 4.5, it's been really slow language-wise. Just trying to be completely honest.

That having been said, and without further ado: we had our IEP meeting last week, and it's official: Brad's going to kindie next year. Full on mainstream, only he will be in a class with an aid. Not his private aid, but a teacher's aid. Accommodations include wait time and prompting and the like.

And private speech therapy continues to hum along. Same type of inference/"how do we solve the problem" drills.

On the social/friendship front, not a whole lot going on there. But he had a blind date - a playdate where the mom didn't know Brad has a dx - and it went okay. That was just two days ago. I might try to fix him up again. The suitor is the little brother of one of Jeremy's friends, and he's age-matched and in the same school district. I think he's a good catch.

So that's what we're up to. Hope everyone in the blogosphere is doing well. I will try to post a video soon.
