Stories of Caring
 

Brooke was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder - Not Otherwise Specified, or PDD-NOS, for short. It is a condition on the autism spectrum that has those with it exhibiting some, but not all, of the symptoms associated with classic autism. This can include difficulty socializing with others, repetitive behaviors, and heightened sensitivities to certain stimuli.  Just before she turned 4 years old. I started noticing that there was something off about Brooke before she was even 1 but at that age we just thought she would grow out of these things. Around the age of 2 was when I really started to worry. She wasnít acting like other kids her age. She wasnít talking much except for copying words and phrases that she heard all the time from us. She wasnít communicating her needs and she wasnít playing the same as other kids or taking an interest in playing with other kids.
