PDA Society training

The PDA Society offers a suite of training options for PDA people, parents, carers and professionals which we deliver both directly and on behalf of other organisations.

We offer a range of CPD accredited courses for professionals, which are marked with the CPD certified logo. For further information, please contact our training team at training@pdasociety.org.uk.

Our courses are delivered by training facilitators with valuable lived experience of PDA as PDAers themselves, parents, carers, partners, family members or professionals working with PDA people.

In this video, various organisations explain why they sought training from the PDA Society and how our training benefitted their staff and the PDA people they support.
