Re: Aspie Diagnosis

Our son received his dx at 3.5. There was some debate about whether he was pdd/nos or apsie. I think the fact that he was VERY verbal with a propensity to memorize facts and a high anxiety level swung the dx to aspie. Upon visiting an Aspen group we were told that we were very lucky to get dx so young...most others in the group we're getting diagnosed after age 6 and even as teens. In fact, getting a diagnosis of Aspergers so young made our DDD caseworker so curious...he came to the house to visit our son, and promptly pronounced him to have PDD instead.
