PLEASE read this book if you question ANY of your child's behavior and/or learning skills! This book saved my son's home-life and school-life.
We went years without a diagnosis, until one psychiatrist finally put the time and effort in; that my son needed.
I was completely clueless and happened upon this book...I cried through almost every chapter...I felt as if I had found the Lost Grail! Someone wrote a book about our family's daily life!
I so wish I had found this book earlier

Recommends it for: those who want to learn/understand about pervasive developmental disorder

Someone (I wish I could remember who) recommended that I read Pervasive Developmental Disorder: An Altered Perspective (by Barbara Quinn and Anthony Malone) so that I could understand better about PDD-NOS. I would like to thank that person because yes, this book helped so much! There are some sections in the book that are a little difficult to understand because the discussion is about biology and how our brains work. However, the authors suggest that the reader start out where the greatest need
I good book for absolute basic information. It explains not only what is different about a child with PDD, but also explains how it compares to normal.

It covers about as much as the "100 Day Guide" only with a little more information about what the symptoms may or may not be, and how it compares to normal. And a little less information about what the parents may be going through, or how to cope, etc.
