Autism and Jace

Jace was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder. PDD falls in the umbrella of autism. In August it was determined that Jace, after 2 years, no longer needed speech therapy and I think the diagnosis of PDD definitely does not fit my little guy anymore.


Every morning when Earl takes the kids to the bus stop Ezie and Mallory race up and down our long drive way. Jace is so funny. You can see how far behind he is. He gets half way down the drive way and then turns around really quick and runs back up and then he is "The Winner!!"

This is Jace one morning after the school bus left without him. He was so disappointed!! He has his Superman lunch box packed with a snack and is ready to go learn. Poor guy....he still has 2 more years.



Jace is into Power Rangers big time. Earl went out yesterday morning and bought this costume for Jace as a surprise present. He was in heaven!


I love this picture of Ezie and Jace. Ezie is being his antagonistic self and Jace is cracking up laughing. This picture makes me smile every time I look at it!!


Part of the reason Jace was diagnosed with PDD was because of his regression in speech and then because of his being very nonsocial. He doesn't shut up now and he has become very social. When we go out he will talk to anyone and everyone. He even makes eye contact now when he talks. I'm so proud of Jace and all of his accomplishments!! He is such a wonderful little guy and a blessing!!

I love that little guy! And I agree- the diagnosis of PDD really doesn't seem like him at all!

He's never gonna take that Power Rangers costume off- you're going to have to cut it off of him when he grows out of it! lol

You are blessed because you deserve it :)

How fun to watch him each day. Alexander was really into Superman and wore his Superman pj's every single day to every place we went. It is so fun and creative to be someone else. He really is a "winner".
