Special Needs


DS has a diagnosis (PDD-NOS). I am broken. I will get over the shock and figure out how to navigate IEPs and insurance covered therapies, but right now I am reeling.

  • Take as much time as you need to process things. We are here if you need to "talk."

  • It will get better. We're more than 2 years post-diagnosis. I'm in a much better place now than I was initially, that is for sure (though admittedly, there have been some big ups and downs in the meantime). Some days are fantastic, and others, I feel my grief strongly. I suspect it may always be like this- but it is bearable. It helped me a lot to be on this board with other moms who "get it".
  • I just want to give you a hug.

    My DS has PDD-NOS a year ago but we updated to autism spectrum disorder recently.

    We really are a great board with great support and advice! We are in this together and we will be here when you need us.

  • I hear you.  We got a pdd-nos dx about 2 years ago - I even saw it coming a mile away and was still floored it actually happened.  Not a great day.  It took me a solid year to get to acceptance.

    Hang in there.
