I am so glad that I found your post. I havent slept since my son had his EEG. He was diagnosed with PDD-NOS and ADHD. And he's got some speech delay. He has gotten better at talking between the medication and the speech therapies. He's still not too keen on liking people.
. But his older brother and sister try to incorporate him. He's never had a seizure. Both EEG and MRI came back normal. But I do see where my little one toots to the beat of his own drum, and he's quiet happy about it.
Non of his doctors have spoken to us about him losing his label. But they believe that with the therapies, the meds, constant coaching, and most of all the love and understanding of those around him, such as his parents and care takers he will learn to live with it.
But thank you so much for posting your message it does make me feel like I am not alone.

She had a drop seizure in April. This is the only seizure that I am aware she has ever had. Her doctor said kids on the autistic spectrum are very prone to seizures.
She had an EEG and an MRI. The MRI was normal. The EEG did not show seizure activity, but did show a general slowing of her brainwaves as compared to other kids. The neurologist explained this as a maturational delay. He said as children get older their brainwaves get faster until they reach their adult speeds. She is behind, but there could be many reasons for it. He said the finding does not indicate anything specifically and does not warrant any treatment.
I am curious if other children with EEGs have had this abnormality, and if so, how they presented. I did find some information about ADHD, and that this is a common EEG abnormality in ADHD.
