PDA is a relatively new term being used as a clinical description.
Demand Avoidance can be seen in children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) but when the avoidance reaches a pathological level, major difficulties arise. Both parents and teaching staff will have challenges as they have never known before!
We will explore:
The key differences in working with young people with ASD and children with ASD with a PDA profile.
Effective teaching and everyday approaches
These young people are identified as very complex and it is a whole package of measures that makes the difference rather than isolating a few key issues .There are no absolute or clear guidelines but a repertoire of approaches that can make a difference
The low arousal ways to help: workshop by Rachel Tenacious
Libby Hill is a multi-award winning speech and language therapist who works with children with PDA from all over the UK. She belongs to the PDA professionals group and the research group.
Rachel Tenacious is proud to have ASD and has lots of experience of approaches that really work.
