PDA Training for Parents and Professionals by Karen Whichello

sidebyside.png
This one day course aims to improve the understanding of PDA for parents, teachers or other professionals living or working with children or young people who have a diagnosis or suspected as having PDA. It offers simple but effective strategies to help reduce anxiety, recognising triggers to meltdowns and building self esteem leading to happier outcomes for everyone.
 
It is a pre-requisite that all members of the Side by Side team are either parents, have close family members or have the conditions themselves as we believe this gives a unique and essential depth of knowledge and understanding.

The training is written and delivered by Karen Whichello, a mother of a child with this condition. Prior to joining Side by Side Karen worked within a specialist autism school supporting children in the classroom with behaviour difficulties specialising in PDA and autistic spectrum disorders. She is also the co-writer of the article published in the 'The Good Schools Guide' on Pathological Demand Avoidance.

The course is delivered as a small group session giving the opportunity for questions and discussion of the problems currently being faced. The course covers the following key areas:
 
  • What defines PDA
  • Understanding the key diagnostic criteria and other related characteristics
  • How PDA differs from other autistic spectrum disorders and ODD
  • Teaching emotional intelligence to help reduce anxiety
  • Effective communication enabling co-operation
  • Strategies to improve learning and behaviours
