    hello Lynda and welcome to the site. You might be lucky in the fact that you live in Nottingham and the Elizabeth Newson Centre is there. You can find lots of information on PDA on the main website Once you have read it, it might make you understand your sons behaviours easier.
    Take care,

    Hi we live in Nottingham too and my son has ASD with PDA. There are a few good support groups around if you think they will help, I know a couple of them are run by members on here so if you want some details let me know

    Hi Lynda

    I have a 12 yr old son with PDA and Autism and we live in Nottm. I would love to help you regarding PDA or education issues.
    I also have a 15 yr old son with Aspergers who is not in school and we have found him a form of education in Nottingham.
    I also run a support group in Nottm.
    I will contact you via private messaging.
