Pervasive Developmental Disorder (Not Otherwise Specified)

Outcomes

Individuals with Pervasive Developmental Disorder - Not Otherwise Specified (like other people with autism) vary enormously but most will find it hard to cope with other people, to work or to function independently.

Realistically, some can be expected to continue to need some degree of assistance as adults.

In severe form the condition may require intensive, specialised, life long care and support.

Without timely and informed help and support there can be potentially devastating consequences for people with PDD - NOS and those around them.
