The Autism Roundup - And a winner!

So far there has been a less than stellar response to our contests.. oh well, more chances for those who do play! 

The winner of Mary Kaye's album "Spin Your Web"  is long  time PD reader Mubeenah, the only person who had the balls to post using her name. 

Mubeenah correctly identified PDD-NOS as "Pervasive Developmental Disorder - Not Otherwise Specified".

The PDD spectrum of disorders are frightening for parents for all kinds of reasons.  This is why so much research is going on in the field.  A bunch of it was published this past week:

Autistic Children Can Gain Significantly In IQ Through Early Intervention

Social Behavior Differs In Children With Family History Of Autism

Children With Autism Have Difficulty Recognizing Ordinary Words
