the psychiatrist at the RTC says he and his staff have seen PDD-NOS when evaluating Sissy. I said it's common for RADs to mimic delays and spectral disorders, particularly because Sissy's brother is Asperger's. I also cited her Gilliam-Asperger Quotient scores the pscyhologist's psychometric testing came up with. Sissy consistently scores just outside the diagnosable parameters and the psychologist and I have gone round and round about wether or not to diagnose her as Asperger's but have always erred on the side of caution, citing her RADs diagnosis as the more likely culprit for her presentation as a delayed child.
Anyway, the RTC psychiatrist disagreed.
I told him not to put it in her file.
He agreed to that request.
So... how many of your RADishes got a misdiagnosis of PDD-NOS or Asperger's?
