Sounds like mine too (PDD-NOS).

The the OP -- does your daughter have OT services? If not, I'd formally request an OT eval, and if services are recommended, I'd have them put on the IEP. It sounds like she has sensory issues.

It's often really tough to get OT services. If they can pull out 1 paper with decent handwriting, your request will be denied.

I was fortunate that mine was referred to OT for handwriting and the OT came back with sensory processing disorder on the eval in addition to the handwriting issues.

Its a shame its so hard to get OT b/c OTs seem to have so many useful tools and techniques - even if its just to teach the parents some "tricks of the trade".

I'd recommend getting the Psychologic Testing done. That way they can pin it down for certain.
