About the event

Pathological Demand Avoidance Conference - Birmingham

 

Providing professionals and parents with clearer understanding of PDA, plus essential strategies for education, management and communication.
 
PDA (pathological demand avoidance) is a behaviour profile within the autism spectrum which affects boys and girls equally. People with PDA need different amounts of support depending on how their condition affects them. The main difficulty is avoidance of the everyday demands made by other people, due to their high anxiety levels when they feel that they are not in control. However, they generally have much better social communication and interaction skills than other people on the spectrum, so can use those skills to disguise their resistance through common avoidance behaviour.

Do you work with children or adults with Pathological Demand Avoidance? Would you like to learn more about diagnosis, as well as strategies to help support them at home and in the classroom? Join us to discover the tools and strategies you need to identify and provide targeted support for children and adults who have PDA.
