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.

Developmental Milestone

Drumroll please.

The results of Brad's most recent annual speech eval are in, and he's testing in the average range or better for receptive, expressive, simple narratives, complex narratives, pragmatics - everything!  Yay!  It took him until age 6.5 to get there, but he's there.

Previous posts on prior speech evals here, here, and here.  

It's been a long journey.  It's not over yet, but this is me, smelling the roses.

Hi Brad

My name is Jenna. You are a brave courageous fighter. you are a special miracle from god, a gift from above, earthly angel,and you are a smilen hero. You are full of happiness, life, smiles, joy, fun,love, and spunk.

I was born with a rare life threatening disease, and have 14 other medical conditions, and developmental delays.

I wrote this poem
Each of us are Special
Each of us different,
No one is the same
Each of are us are unique in our own way,
Those of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.
Those who of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.
It doesn't matter what others say
we are special anyway.
What is forty feet and sings? the school chior
