Hello, Our girl was recently diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)-not otherwise specified on the ADOS test. Total score, for what its worth, was a 36. Daughter was awesome before, very compliant, hardly ever any outburts, no tantrums, etc. She was though, known as the defiant child. Now, however, she is acting extremely crazy when she gets angry--biting, hitting HARD (siblings and myself), screaming in public when she gets aggravated, and simply DOES NOT CARE. Her philosophy is: you hit me, I hit you. you yell at me, i yell at you. i give the orders. i run the house. And..she is not joking. Of course, this has spilled over into our marriage (my wife and i fight a lot now). we have 4 kids. She is eldest. Other ages are 7,3, and 2. Only 2 yr old is a boy, all rest are girls. Our daughter was again the most compliant person ever. But we saw radical changes this past year. We went through 6 doctors before she was diagnosed. Every doctor said, no Autism, we were nuts. But we persevered with the ADOS test at Childrens Specialized Hospital! Dr also said she has high anxiety. We just get strattera. Not sure if it will work, so far it has not. Ive no idea what to do at this point.
