Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) is part of the complex Autistic Spectrum Conditions, one that is not recognised by certain healthcare professionals (for EHCP purposes).
People with PDA need a very different approach to the usual which is successfully adopted with autistic individuals.
Meeting the Needs of Individuals with PDA – In this Level 2 training course, we will help you to get to the heart of the condition, and will share with you many ways to apply positive behaviour management. At the same time, you’ll learn how PDA affects learning and come away with practical and meaningful ways to have a calmer learning space.
So if you need help to support behaviours such as individuals who:
**appear sociable, but lack depth in understanding
