Autism - Signs of Persuasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS)

Children with Persuasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) show different signs at different times. This is one of the reasons they are not classified as being fully Autistic. Let's look at one of the categories associated with PDD-NOS.

Signs of Unusual Behaviors

Children with Persuasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified often exhibit unusual behaviors. Some of these behaviors can include repetitive actions.

The repeated actions can include hand flapping or movements of their fingers. They may insist on eating the same food for every meal. They may become focused on one topic and learn everything they can about that topic. For example, they may take a liking to baseball. They then will learn everything they can about baseball. They might be able to tell you all the stats for their favorite team.

Children with PDD-NOS often have a hard time with change. They want the same routine everyday. The littlest change can set them up for a breakdown. They may arrange their toys a certain way and if someone disturbs those toys it can be devastating to the child.

Teaching new skills to Children with PDD-NOS can be very hard to do. They do not want to change their routine to allow time to learn the new skill. And just the fact that a new skill is different, is a reason for them not to want to learn it. They like doing the same things, and learning something new changes that.

Some children with Persuasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified will develop an attachment to some object. They may like the tactile sensation of the way the object feels in their hands. Children with PDD-NOS often like a certain texture. You may see them switching objects until they find one that makes them feel comfortable. The object could be something ordinary like a rubber band, or a piece of fabric. When they find such an object, it may be hard to take the item away from the child.

Attachments can also be formed with a smell, or taste. If their mother changes her perfume, for example, it could upset the child. Washing clothes in a new detergent may keep them from wanting to wear those clothes. There is something about the when the world changes around them... So that a change as simple as using a different type of soap triggers an uneasy feeling in a child with Persuasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified. (Note:  You may want to use a fragrance free laundry detergent.)

Sensory issues are often found in children with PDD-NOS. And it may seem arbitrary. They might not want a parent to hug or cuddle them, but they may like to rough house.

Kids with Persuasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified might become attached to the way a certain food feels in their mouth. Then they will only want to eat that food for each meal. This can make getting the proper nutrition difficult. And yet wholesome, highly nutritious food is a basic necessity for good health... Start as early as possible to provide a range of whole foods, organic if possible, so that they are part of the child's world at an young age.

Sometimes loud sounds can bother these children, or they may be completely obilivious to such noises. This makes the parents wonder if their child has a hearing problem, when really it is PDD-NOS.

Unusual behaviors are just one category of signs indicating Persuasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified. But there are many other signs that help in a evaluation. If you see signs like these listed here in your child, discuss it with your doctor. He or she can tell you if it is something to be concerned about.
