what is the difference between asperger's and pdd-nos?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Cornelia Franz
Specializes in Pediatrics
Function: Aspergers tend to be academically bright and have social issues as they do not read emotional cues well. They do not have language issues. Pdd-nos or pervasive developmental delay can also have a wide range of dysfunction and as the name suggests have delays across the board. They can be similar or vary in how they manifest on the spectrum.
