Pervasive Development Disorder (PDD) not specified - information

Wed 15 Mar 2017 5:59pm

Hello, my son was diagnosed 2 years ago in France as being PDD not specific.  He has regular sessions of psychomotricity and we see a pedopsychatrist about 2 to 3 times a year, he has someone to help him in the classroom and in general he is making progress above all with his social skills.  However there is so much that my husband and I do not understand, firstly the diagnostic, we have understood that he is basically in the spectrum of autism and that he is affected lightly.

Hi everyone!

Wed 8 Feb 2017 12:52pm

Hi! My name is Alex I am currently a 4th year student at the university of Dundee studying psychology and english literature. I am really interested in autism and decided to do my dissertation on a topic I think is important, which is the transition between primary and secondary school for children with autism. 

The study explores parental views of the support given to children with autism in primary and secondary schools.

Discussing Autism In The Classroom And Questions Afterwards

Sun 29 Jan 2017 7:26pm

Hi, my son is dyspraxic and autsitic. He is in year 5 (age 9) and (finally!) attending a lovely primary school with an amazing and supportve teacher. Next week, along with the Local Authority Autism Advisory Teacher, he is going to do a presentation to his classmates about "his autism." He's really excited about doing it and we all see this as a very important and positive step towards acceptance and understanding for him and others. The teacher has asked what she should do with inquisitive parents?
