PDA for Parents/Carers run over two online Zoom sessions 16th and 23rd September 2021 (10am-12.30pm)

About this event

This course is for parents and carers of children with the autism profile of PDA up to the age of 18yrs. Families with young people aged 18yrs+ are very welcome to join but due to time constraints we’re unable to cover specific adult approaches and ideas within this course. Each session is packed with information with opportunities for discussion and questions but please note that it’s not designed as a fully interactive workshop

During the course we will discuss: ‘What is PDA?’, consider what demands are, and their effects, then explore how to help using a variety of different approaches. We’ll also take a look at siblings, diagnosis and education.

We would ask that all delegates watch our Introductory Webinar (23 mins) prior to attending the first session, in order that participants start from the same foundation of knowledge that will be built upon during the course: PDA Society Introductory Webinar

Please note that this course is being run over two sessions via Zoom on the 16th and 23rd Sept, both from 10am-12.30pm. When booking please ensure that you can attend both sessions as refunds or transfers to another date will not be possible after the course has started.
