I've always hated the diagnosis, PDD-NOS.

I've always hated the diagnosis, PDD-NOS. Kind of like a catch-all for the kids who don't quite fit into the Autism, ADHD, SDP, APD, OCD or Aspie categories. What is so sad to me is that by splitting our children up into these separate categories based NOT on any rational causation, but on an arbitrarily defined box of symptoms, the so-called professionals miss, what I think is the bigger picture which is how much these individual diagnoses have in common. There are so many symptoms which overlap from one dx to another. AND, when the individual dx's are broken down and examined as [mental] process and perception, the differences between the individual diagnoses virtually disappear.
