About this Event

This course is suitable for professionals working with and supporting young people with the autism profile of Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA). Although primarily targeted towards mainstream, SEN or autism specific schools, it would benefit all professionals working with young people aged between 5-16yrs.

This basic introductory session will look at:

  • What is PDA?
  • What are demands?
  • Helpful approaches
  • PDA & Education
  • Resources/signposting
  • Q&A

Participants may find it helpful to have watched our 23 minute introductory webinar prior to attending the training.

Please Note: any legislation discussed is related to England and delegates joining from other locations will need to consider their own local legal requirements.
