Pddnos does have a speech delay.

Not that any of it matters since both pddnos and aspergers will no longer exist after the 2013 dsm 5 comes out. Which is so silly!
I can't bold....but UM WHHAAAATT?!!?! Why is the diagnosis being removed? My son is high functioning but we still need help, therapy, behavioral modification, and a 504 and without his diagnosis none of that will be available to us through insurance.

Can you share more information about this? It point me in a direction? I have a conference with DS pediatrician in a week and ill have to ask about this.
