So this is the last diagnosis associated with autism, that I’m aware of and one of the hardest to find a clear cut description of. The New York Times reference I was using had links to the others, but not to this one. Strange. So I searched their site for Pervasive developmental disorder – not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS), also called atypical autism. and found a response to a parenting blog that had been written. A woman offered a guest post about her 13 year old son with this diagnosis, and once again, I’m liking the real life experience. I’m going to let her post speak for itself on this one. Apparently she had a book coming out. Go give it a read, as it’s informative and personal.
