explaining PDA

    How do I explain PDA such that people won't just think I'm a troublemaker? When getting accomodations I mostly just talk about autism and sometimes disguise PDA issues as regular autistic issues because I'm afraid of people reacting badly if I try to explain what's actually going on. Would it help if I called PDA a phobia of being controlled?
  • I tell people in advance that my son has some social and communication problems, then people look at me like I'm mad when he's fine. Then they meet him again, and catch my eye in acknowledgement.
