Treating PDD

There is no known cure for PDD. Medications may be used to address specific behavioral problems; therapy for children with this condition should be specialized according to need. Some children with PDD benefit when the class size is small and instruction is given on a one-to-one basis. Others function well in standard special education classes or regular classes with additional support.

Prognosis With PDD

Early intervention, including appropriate and specialized educational programs and support services, plays a critical role in improving the outcome of individuals with PDD. This disorder is not fatal and does not affect normal life expectancy.
