We have been unschooling our kids for several years now.  DS has some medical issues that have affected his learning (brain atrophy and hydrocephalus).  We had some testing done that came back as PDD-NOS.  Also, the "IQ" portion stated he had difficulty with processing speed, working memory and to some extent perceptual reasoning.  Anyone else unschooling a child with PDD-NOS and/or "IQ" issues.  I'm struggling with helping him get the most out his life.  And I'm struggling with "am I doing the right thing" and "do I have the tools to help him".  So please, if you've had experience with Unschooling and PDD-NOS or a child with learning issues, let me know how you do it.  Anything special you do?  do you utilize occupational therapists to help with certain areas for example?
