    I sincerely hope the research suggested to Parliament highlights articles like these , exactly what we have explained in evidence both verbally and at the initial Petition Stage .

    Read the evidence for themselves on the PDA FB and Forum of the Worldwide Interest of the Webinar and the massive surge to promote and set up desperately needed support groups .

    As well as the negative we must also promote the positive side with correct Stratagies.

    PDA is exactly the same as Aspbergers, each case is unique. How the symptoms present in Mary's Hannah and my two boys are complety different . Hannah is extreme PDA , my youngest was obvious from birth, the elder of the two boys was subtle but as he got older the symptoms intensified.

    Training required at all levels .

    At present PDA is very much a Post Code Lottery. We need consistency, early intervention, acurrate PDA Stratagies and most importantly support.

    These videos on YouTube of Harry explaining how PDA affects him are amazing.

    One of his statements about late diagnosis Aspbergers but it didn't cover everything rings so true in my family .

    At 19 and 20 we still don't have all the answers , it's exactly the same for Hannah she presents with Hypermobility, SPD and Dyspraxia none of which have been recognised.

    My youngest has just been diagnosed with Hypermobility, like Hannah should have been recognisable since birth.

    Hannah's Autism and Hypermobility was recognised by a nursery teacher but blatently ignored all those years.
