This 2 page information sheet provides a summary of PDA helpful approaches for parents and carers.
Autism and the PDA profile are ‘dimensional’ – meaning they vary a lot from one person to another and at different times or with different people – so parents/carers need a ‘toolkit’ of helpful approaches, tailored to each child, applied flexibly and reviewed regularly.
This resource covers:
- The PANDA
- Adjusting your mindset
- Support tips
- Optimising the environment
- Being cautious with rewards/praise/sanctions
- Reducing the perception of demands
For more detailed information please see: Helpful approaches – children.
