In some ways I am sad about the actual label of PPD-NOS rather then classic autism because it limits our services. He was missing one social piece in the social category, more then enough to qualify in every other section. He does very well in one on one therapy/eval settings, real life is another story. He did ok at a Speech play group last spring that was like a preschool but he has certainly changed for the worse since, he barely functions in our own family these days.
I'm so sorry you don't have better options in your area. But I admire your strength and commitment to your little boy!
Would driving to another bigger city nearby be an option since the options you do have are so limited and perhaps not options at all?
