I feel so guilty...

My 10 year old son has PDD. He is very smart but hates school. He is happy to have one friend who looks at him oddly most of the time. My son entertains himself by singing the same song over and over and over again. It's not even a song, it can be a short phrase or humming or words I cannot understand.when he plays and pretends he is a character in a show he uses a high pitch voice and just repeats himself over and over again. I feel guilty because I just want to walkinto my room or the balcony and not hear him. I try to all to him and tell him. He needs to make conversations not just sounds. Also, as he grows older he is becoming more defiant. He talks back and says "I don't want to" "why do I have to" .... For basic things as a shower, or homework. A change in his routine or a trip to the supermarket becomes a mission because he does not want to leave his time. He thinks I am waiting his play time by forcing him to leave the house. Does his personality sound familiar to you? If so, please help me find a way to help him....he is only 10 but he will not improve unless I can figure out what to do. When he was smaller it was so much easier. :(

My 7 year old daughter has PDD as well. She is a lot like your son by the sound of it. Except she loves school and has several friends. It drives me nuts when my daughter sings the same song or says the same phrase over and over. I can't stand the repetition. Honestly, I just tell her to say something else cuz she's driving me nuts. lol She's also started talking back a lot, and I have no idea what to do about that. Is your son involved in any intervention programs?
