Our son just turned 3, was diagnosed with PDDNOS just after his 2nd b-day. It's always been in the back of my mind having other children but I now feel like I really need to make a choice. I thought I eventually would just know, but the decision over time hasn't gotten an easier to make. We would love to have more children, I just know there is a lot to consider. I feel I need to be responsible in making this decision and not make it on just emotion. I am trying to be realistic in how it may impact our family. I feel regardless of our genetic predisposition it's a crapshoot either way. I just feel there is a lot to be considered. I'm trying to listen to my heart but also use my mind. I just thought the best advice may come from other parents faced with this decision as well.

hiya my son has suspected pdd nos , before we found out we were trying for another child now wehave decided not to simply because our son seems to be getting worse with age , my son is 1 of 4 children already thou and we are struggling witht he violent outbursts at present so bringin a baby into the aquation just is not an option at the moment . you need to consider how all partys concerned may react is your son an only child ? he may not react well having a baby brother or sister or he may be fine about it it also depends on what severity he has pdd as my son is considered a severe case for me the decision was easy but it is a blow especially if you really want another baby sorry i cant help more as im quite new to this just wanted you to no your not alone !

How is your son doing right now,if he is responding well and i know he will since PDDNOS is milder than autism. so i am sure he will make a fast recovery.
After some time when he shows significant progress then you can definitely think of enhancing your family.All the very best.
