International PDA related Facebook Groups

Regional Facebook Groups

If there isn’t a Facebook PDA support group in your area, please be aware that some more general autism or special needs groups do also support PDA so do give them a call/email to see if there may be other parents in your locality. You may even decide to set up your own regional Facebook PDA support group.
