awhile back i posted on here that i thougt my son was autistic.
well after being on a waiting list he finally got a testing appt.
he was diagnosed with pdd.

he is almost 4.

i am having trouble with getting him in the school system's speacial needs prek program

i am new at this and not finding much help with the therapy he was prescribed,
occupational, speech, and behavoral.

does anyone know of centers near dallas?

also any local support groups for families with autism?
my son can be difficult to deal with...

i am a young mother and finding it hard to understand what exactly hes going through.

i love him unconditionally :wub: and would like to find help making it easier on both of us to deal.

any information would be greatly appreciated!

thanks in advance
catherine

Why are they not putting him in the school system? I have triplets and two of them are in there and they didn't put it off.

i have turned in all the information packets they sent me and turned in copies of his diagnosis.
i have called several times and left messages and never get a call back,
this has been a few weeks with no response.

i work for the school system and still cant get them too respond to me!

I had no problem getting my son in Algood's special needs pre k program and he loves it and so do I. I would contact Heather Henry at Paulding County School board, she is the lead teacher over all the pre-k programs in Paulding.

Heather Henry is the one that I also had to talk to for the triplets. My kids were at Dallas Elementary but now they go to Burnt Hickory I can't believe they aren't working on it more.

i did google pdd just now and a bunch of informational sites came up.
one being baby bumble bee dvds
they had alot of great reviews from the speech part

has anyone on here heard of this or used it?

thinking about purchasing a set of dvds/
couldnt hurt right?

my biggest difficulty with mason is not understanding him which in return frustrates him,
he watches puppy dog learning videos and has learned his colors abcs 123s and his shapes

i think he is more visual receptive


oh that was another diagnoses along with pdd
he has receptive expressive language disorder...

I can also get you the first 100 day notebook from Autism Speaks if that would be helpful. It has a lot of great information in it.

So did my granddaughter, she is now in 1st grade at Northside and is making huge strides. We have been lucky.

There's a set of signing tapes called Baby Signing Time. It's made by the same company that publishes Hooked On Phonics. I've used it with many children and have had great success. I'm sure it can probably be ordered on-line. Be careful if you purchase other DVD's before you actually watch them. Many of them have adults doing the signing and they are done too quickly for little ones to really learn it and they don't often hold a small child's attention. The Baby Signing Time dvd's have an adult modeling the sign, but then there are children that are using it as well. There's lots of music and it tends to really draw even the child that won't watch tv to it.

I'm not aware of a support group in this area.. but am compiling a list of names of those who are interested. Would you prefer a morning meeting (10:00) or an evening meeting? The parents will not all have children with autism, but some of them will be. Regardless, it will be a group who are all looking for support.. and all parents need that regardless of the disability. If you're interested, just let me know.

The law says...
300.301 Initial evaluations..... must be conducted within 60 days of receiving parental consent for the evaluation.
Did you send in the papers giving parental consent and were you given some scales to fill out on his current performance?
