Hi zeberdy
I can't give you any advice really as def not experienced in this- sorry.
I have very, very strong suspisions that my ds has PDA. How old is your child?
Have you seen my post asking about PDA diagnosis? Your experience would be really interesting to me.

Hi Sops
What makes you think your DS has PDA?My DS is 8 yr old. He is semi diagnosed but I am not 100% convinced because the issues appear mainly in school-I know pda websites suggest it usually is strong at home or school but we are at a loss how to cope with school situation.Tell me your fears and I can say if similar to ours?
