New practice guidance on identifying and assessing a PDA profile, collating the professional practice and experience of a multidisciplinary group of professionals working in the NHS and private practice, has been produced by the PDA Society and is now available to download. Printed copies will also be available to order by the end of February.

The goal of this document is to aid assessment of a PDA profile, to distinguish PDA from other presentations of marked demand avoidance, and to signpost appropriate support and guidance for individuals and families.

We hope this resource will be informative and useful for all involved in identifying and assessing neurodevelopmental conditions in children and adults, as well as other healthcare, social care and education professionals.
