I am lucky to have so many parents reach out to me with their stories about their Children. Please keep the stories coming and ask as many questions as you want. I am not a child behavorist or an expert by any means, but I have a PDD-NOS child who is night and day different then when he was first diagnosed. He improved and changed because no matter how hard it was to find out our child had developmental issues we never treated him differently. Instead we got the help he needed, embraced him and showered him with love and learned how to communicate in a way he understood. Eli still has many of the PDD-NOS issues but he is vastly improved and most people don’t see the PDD-NOS. PDD-NOS is nothing to be ashamed about, it is simply a term. Your PDD-NOS child is locked in a world of confusion. All you have to do is open the door!
I invite any parent who wants to talk about their child, ask questions, get advice to email me or reply to this or any post on this blog. I might not have the answers, but I do have seven years of experience with my PDD-NOS child who is fantastic and has conquered many of his PDD-NOS issues. The SEIT always said that Eli had it in him the entire time, and that he knew Eli would be fine. He was right. Eli is brilliant, stubborn, affectionate, social, responsible, energetic, at times moody and cranky but show me a kid who isn’t. Embrace the PDD-NOS, get your child the help they need to unlock the developmental hurdles.
