Managing your child with PDA

This one day course, delivered by Dr Judy Eaton,  is aimed at parents, and grandparents, who have (or suspect they have) a child with Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA).  The course will provide information on the key features of PDA, how PDA differs from other disorders such as Oppositional Defiance Disorder and Conduct Disorder and how to access a diagnosis and support.  It will also address triggers for behavioural ‘meltdowns’ and how to manage them when they do occur.  We will also look at the impact of having a child with PDA on partners and siblings.  Finally the course covers a brief look at PDA in adolescence and mental health issues in young people with PDA.  The course is run in an informal and supportive manner and provides plenty of opportunity for discussion and sharing of ideas and experiences.

Managing children with Autism and PDA in school

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.
