Overview

This one day course, delivered by Dr Judy Eaton, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, is aimed at classroom teachers, SENCOs, teaching assistants, support workers and lunch-time staff.  It provides an overview of the key features of both Autism and Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA), and explains how PDA differs from other disorders such as Oppositional Defiance Disorder and Conduct Disorder. We discuss how the school environment can impact upon a child with Autism/PDA and offer suggestions for maximising learning opportunities for these children. How to recognise triggers for behavioural ‘meltdowns’, together with their management, is also included. Promoting positive relationships with parents and tackling the issue of exclusion is covered along with discussion about EHCP’s. Finally we discuss Autism/PDA and adolescence and Autism/PDA and mental health issues. The whole course is run in an informal manner and provides ample opportunity for discussion, questions and sharing of ideas.
 
The cost of this course is £89.00, inclusive of coffee, biscuits and a buffet style lunch.
