Anyone heard of this? Apparently it's going to be a new diagnosis when the DSM-5 comes out next year.
We finally got the report from DS1's neuropsych eval. He's almost 6, was dx with ADHD last summer (combined type). The psychologist gave him a new dx of PDD-NOS. His behavioral challenges (aggression, poor social skills) are beyond what's usually seen with ADHD. But then, he doesn't meet criteria for ASD or Asperger's, and he doesn't really act like either of those either. Thus the PDD-NOS label...From what little I can find the Social Communication Disorder really seems to fit him - he can't seem to learn social skills on his own, but he does understand & can learn them from his counseling sessions and social skills group. But since it's not in the manual yet i have no idea what the actual diagnostic criteria will be.
Tomorrow is the IEP meeting for school & it's his 3-year re-eval for SPED. I'll be interested to see what the team makes of this report - it's 17 PAGES long!
