In brief: On autism spectrum
Pdd is a diagnosis given when a person has autistic characteristics such as difficulty with social interaction, language comprehension problems, or sensory issues but does not meet criteria for a specific autistic spectrum disorder (asd).
Consult an autism specialist to create personal behavior, family coping and educational strategies. More info @nimh, cdc, autism speaks websites for a start.
