    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    My son is 10 y/o w PDD NOS. He's currently in a 9 1/2 classroom special needs room . He has good language and fair reading skills, struggles alot with math.(so do I!!) He would struggle to keep up w a regular class and has behavior problems, although they are getting better. My problem concerns his social interactions. Most of the kids in his class behave sort of the same way. He's in a school with multiply disabled kids. What can I do to help his interactions ? The school he's in is great but limited in areas like after school activities, clubs. His brother is seven , but also on the spectrum and he seems to want friends his age.
