Update on Musician's PDD-NOS

A few months ago I mentioned how Musician was diagnosed with PDD-NOS.

Since then he's met with a couple of autism specialists and he continues to make progress in certain areas (communication, socialization, etc.), but he still needs help with focusing on tasks and making eye-contact, among other things.

I'm constantly doing research to find out what kinds of things I can do for him on my own, and it seems as if autism resources in Hawaii are very limited compared to in the mainland (on our recent trip to LA one of the first commercials I saw when I turned on the TV was for autism support--never saw an autism commercial here in Hawaii!).

It's frustrating.

Fortunately, I discovered Treating Autism Positively, and Kalma Wong, the woman behind the site, has been a tremendous help thus far.

She's a wealth of information and she's already given me valuable insight and advice.

Well, I just wanted to give a quick update on Musician since a few people have asked...

I hope he continues to make progress and I will continue to do all that I can to help him live as normal of a life as possible.

Hang in there mama! Autism can be so overwhelming at times, as well as the many "treatments" - each child benefits from something different so just pace yourself and know you've got amazing online support even if the offline type is so minimal.
