I have a 23 year old son with PPD-NOS. He was diagnosed when they had no clue. My son had a strict diet and controlled environment to control his behavior. A nutrition specialist will help alot more than all the meds. I was lucky that in my area the school had a summer program, and I also sent him to the boy scout day camps. They cost similar to daycare and were far more structured. I took behavior modification parenting classes and my main caregiver assistant did as well. I am not going to say at 23 he is any easier but our biggest problem now is depression because others don't accept him. He by the way has two beautiful children, only one of them has PPD-NOS.View Thread
