PDA specialist recommendation South East

    Hello - I have just discovered PDA today and finally my son’s behaviour seems to make sense. We are due to see an ASD/anxiety specialist next month but now feel that a PDA specialist would be much better. I have looked at the Lorna Wing Centre online and wondered if anyone could recommend someone there? We are based in Kent so could travel to London too. Thank you so much in advance.

    Also while I am here does anyone have any tips on how to deal with homework? My son is 10 and unsurprisingly it is a constant battle and source of stress to him. Thank you.

    Hi Magnolia, Welcome to the Forum. We have a list of private diagnositic centres under oru diagnosis page - please do take a look: https://www.pdasociety.org.uk/families/diagnosing-pda

    With regards to homework this is a tricky one. When my daughter was at mainstream school and expected to do it, she couldn't. We tried leaving the work out rather than saying it's time to do your homework now and sometimes that worked. Schedulling onto the weekly timetable she uses sometimes worked too. However now we're at specialist school she doesn't have to do homework so life has become easier for us.... she now asks her teacher for homework and does it without any reminder, often on a friday evening!

    Hopefully others maybe able to suggest some more ideas soon. Please do keep posting with any other questions that you may have too.
