Event description

Description

Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) is a complex autism spectrum condition characterised by high anxiety and a need to be in control. As a result of high anxiety individuals with PDA can find everyday demands and requests intolerable. Often children and young people with PDA can display behaviours that are challenging to others.

The strategies to manage PDA are different to the strategies that can be effective for indivudals with other forms of autism. Many parents feel frustrated and helpless as children with PDA can behave very differently at home and school, and therefore are often told that their childs behaviour is a result of their parenting.

This workshops explores the characteristics of PDA and provides parents with a toolkit of strategies to use to suppport their children at home.

This course is aimed at parents of children with a profile of PDA, we also welcome professionals on this course. You do not need your child to have any form of diagnosis to attend this course.
