I think I can help on a few....OT stands for Occupational Therapy. When you see AV it is probably in reference the heart defect called AV Canal defect.

ADD I am guessing is Attention Defecit Disorder. That would be my guess, but I would have to see it used in a sentence.

Hope this helps Smile

OT - Occupational Therapy
ST = Speech Therapy
IEP = Individual Education Plan (plan of therapies, goals, objectives, etc. decided on by parents, therapist & school district on an annual basis)
ENT - Ear nose & throat doctor
GI = Gastro Intestinal doctor
OCD = Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
ADD = Attention Deficit Disorder
VSD = Ventricular Septal Defect (heart problem)
AVSD = Atrioventricular Septal Defect (heart problem)
SMO = supramalleolar orthosis (braces for helping with standing & walking)
AFO = ankle-foot orthosis (braces for helping with standing & walking)


I'm sure there are others but this is all I can think of right now :)

AV canal Is when they have ASD and VSD together. Then there is one big floopy valve instead of two.

PDD - Pervasive Developmental Disorder (This is the family of autistic spectrum disorders)

there is another thread going on at the same time. LOL

DH is Dear (or whatever word you want to start with "D") Husband.

YAY is not an acronym, but the word yay (which is really spelled "yeah", but online you'll often see "yay" instead.)

Here's a link to common acronyms.

LOL....well, that could be debatable depending upon how you feel about husband at any given moment. You know...'could be *Dumb*, *Darn*, *Dam#* Laughing .....but in most instances it means *Dear Husband*. Very Happy
