Encyclopedia > PDD not otherwise specified

PDD not otherwise specified or PDD-NOS is a pervasive developmental disorder. PDD-NOS is a 'subthreshold' condition, in which some conditions of autism or a similar pervasive developmental disorder can be identified, while other conditions cannot be identified. Especially common is difficulty interacting with peers.

Pervasive developmental disorder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (558 words)
PDD is not fatal and does not affect normal life expectancy (however, an increased risk of suicide is associated with Asperger's syndrome).
Other types of PDD include Asperger's syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder, Rett syndrome, and PDD not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS).
Some children with PDD benefit from specialized classrooms in which the class size is small and instruction is given on a one-to-one basis.
Pervasive Developmental Disorders (722 words)
PDDs are a wide spectrum of social and communication disorders, including autism, that can be complicated to diagnose.
PDDs refer to a broader group of neurobiological conditions, known as autistic spectrum disorders, that are characterized by delayed development of communication and social skills.
What is known is that PDDs are not caused by what used to be known as "the cold mother" in psychological studies (earlier notions that these disorders developed because of the emotional detachment of a child's parents have been debunked).
