PDA: NOT WHAT YOU THINK IT IS!

Friday, March 10, 202312:00-1:30 p.m.

Virtual Event

Presented by Dr. Donna Henderson.PDA, commonly known as Pathological Demand Avoidance, is well understoodand accepted in the U.K. but is only now becoming recognized here in the U.S.Unfortunately, the name implies that the core issue is an intentional avoidanceof demands, which blames the child and leads to interventions that can beineffective or worse, traumatic. In reality, PDA is a neurological difference -a subtype of autism – that is better understood as a Pervasive Drive forAutonomy. Individuals with PDA require a unique approach to parenting, intervention,and education. This workshop will provide an overview of the core features andapproaches for intervention and support for individuals with PDA.
