Re: Need to know I'm not alone....

Hi, my nephew has been tested for Autism several times and they keep saying that it's not Autism. He displays several characteristics of an autistic child; he always has to have things in order, he doesn't like for people to love on or touch him and he has "meltdowns". During these "meltdowns" he throws himself on the floor and grunts. When he has one of these episodes he doesn't talk for about 3 hours. I noticed in your post that both of you mentioned "meltdowns" and was wondering if he had any of the same symptoms as your children. I am wondering if he may need to be diagnosed with PDD-NOS. I am just trying to help them figure out what is going on with him. Thanks for any information you can give me.
