The purpose of this site is to guide you to the key issues associated with autism. Did you know that your school district (In this country), is required to find children in need of special education services in your community? This includes infants and preschoolers who would benefit from early intervention.
Why then are so many children not served? Although PDD is only one diagnostic category of disability, it is also the least understood by the public and the schools . Many children with PDD are misdiagnosed and placed in ineffective or harmful programs. Like any other family faced with this diagnosis, as you explore the options and resources available in your community, you will find on the one hand the unlimited potential your child has, and, on the other, the many limits others try to place on their future. This is where a parent, facing a system with many flaws and pitfalls, must not compromise their vision of their child's future.
