Hey everyone, my soon to be 3 year old son was diagnosed with very mild PDD-NOS and we were told his prognosis is very good. However, I'm at the stage where I'm just paranoid about everything he does or says. My wife, who has 2 daughters that live with us, is more calm because she has more experience with her daughters behaviours. I'm nit picking on everything my son does and trying hard to figure out what's "normal" behaviour, and what's PDD-NOS. Basically, I'm a wreck. I'm guessing that the behaviors in the spectrum are more intense. For example, during the assessment, we were asked if my son liked spinning objects. Don't all kids like spinning objects? I mean, almost every kid's toy has either flashing lights, spinning objects or both. But, I guess when a child pays too much attention to those things, is when there's a problem. How do you parents understand and deal with which behaviors are part of PDD-NOS and what is just normal kid behavior. Thanks, Ed.
