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.

Jack's progress in T889

Wed 1 Mar 2017 4:34pm

Hello all,

I know I'm not updating as regularly as I used too, but work and study makes it difficult to get in the mood. 

T889 "Problem Solving" has been a new kind of challenge for me, but worthwhile, I have learnt many ways to spot issues in situations. Also turn SpaceX's explosion last year into sucess for me. 

But it has been a great opportunity to apply & expand my knowledge on launching rockets.

My TMA scores are 54%, 70% and 71%, giving me 65.5% OCAS. Very good for a master's level.

transfer to EHC

Thu 23 Feb 2017 5:12am

Hi , I haven't been onli e for quite some time . I have looked through information for transfer from SEN to EHC , I have taken it that all reports (professional) should be current . My son hasn't had an EP assessment since his SEN (4yrs ago) . He attebds a special school and has recent OT & SALT report from school . The school say that it's not necessary and U would need to request it from L/A . I think it quite important to have a relevant EP report , any advice please , is this a good idea to have a report or unnecessary ?

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?
