    I'm an adult diagnosed with PDA approx. 15 yrs ago. I have a daughter, 4 yrs old who we believe has PDA also. We have an appointment for her with a specialist next month. She is currently in occupational therapy and just got accepted into a speech therapy program to help with expressive and receptive language. I wish there was more info about PDA. I've been trying to seek advice on how to parent my PDA daughter. It's very frustrating as punishments do not work at all. The smallest tasks are huge battles for us daily. Getting dressed, picking up her toys, coming to us when we call her, etc. I was put on antidepressants when I was diagnosed years ago. If my daughter is diagnosed with PDA, I really don't want to medicate her since she is only 4 yrs old. Hopefully there are alternative treatments...after all it was years ago when I was treated. I definetely believe PDA can be genetic. My mom told me my daughter acts exactly how I did as a child. Scary!! :o
