Special note about the video:
This case was written before release of the DSM-5 in May 2013. The child in this video was diagnosed with PDD-NOS, which is no longer a diagnosis found in the DSM. Most children who previously would have been diagnosed with PDD-NOS fall under the new category of Autism Spectrum Disorder in the DSM-5. People who received a diagnosis of PDD-NOS or Aspergers prior to release of the DSM-5 keep their diagnosis. The written script reflects the change and therefore is not an exact match to the dialogue in the video.
