I'm at a loss !! Not sure how to even begin, my 13 year old son has just been diagnosed with PDD NOS. I've been up all weekend with my head spinning ! He was mis diagnosed by our school system in 1st grade for ADHD and I tursted in them.
The reason for his neuro pysch eval was bassed on concerns that I had. Being employed by our school system for the first time this past yr I was able to see my son in school and actually interact with other 13 yr olds and his teachers.
I new since he was a baby that something was different about him but trusted in his pediatrician & early intervention to guide me in the right direction. Needless to say everyone around me has let me down and my son has been the one really suffering . No friends, poor academics, bullying , and depression.
What do I do next ?!! Any suggestions?
