HISTORY: Our son was DX'd with PDD-NOS at age 3 1/2 at a private evaluation (highly recommend that parents get an independent evaluation - do not rely solely on a school's evaluation). He scored high on an IQ test during this evaluation, which the doctor told me was significant. At the time, we had just pulled our son from the preschool disabilities program at our local school district, which we felt was not providing him the program he needed. In the fall, he went back into a more appropriate setting for the next two years until he reached Kindergarten age. During this two year time period, our son was additionally diagnosed with ADHD, which we addressed with behavior modification, change to the "Autism" gluten free/casein free diet, and finally when those played out, tried drug therapy with success. He then entered mainstream preschool with a 1:1 aide to assist him in staying on task.
UPDATE, 10 years later ~ My son is now 13 years old in 7th grade mainstream classes. He has an excellent vocabulary, although he speaks with somewhat of a hesitant speech pattern. He has an Autism diagnosis, with the most significant impact in his social skills. He has trouble making friends. However, we are working on this with therapists. The take away I had with Sowell's books was HOPE. That my son would get better, whether he did it at his own pace, or if we did it through the education system and doctors. Either way, my boy has been on Honor Roll and on the track team this year, has attended sleep away camp and is very bright.
