Is the diagnosis of moderate PDD correct?

September 29th, 2007

At 24 months of age any diagnosis on the autism spectrum is a guess as the DSM-IV (the book of all diagnosis) requires that a child be of a certain age and that all other contributing factors be ruled out before an ASD diagnosis is applied.

Also things like mild-moderate are subjective as with all ASD diagnosis a child could have very severe problems with sensory integration but be above average in language… so to say that the whole diagnosis is mild or moderate or whatever is misleading.

Continue to work on the sensory integration issues and continue to work on the language issues. Once she is ready to begin school and once those other issues stabilize you can get a more concrete diagnosis.
