Infant School PDA Experience

    Help for Primary School managing PDA

    We had to remove our four year old son from his first school because neither the school or Jack could cope. He has now just turned 5, and is attending his new school for mornings only. The new school have been excellent and it feels like a partnership. Jack is hugely improved in terms of cooperation, much reduced frequency and intensity of outbursts etc.

    The Newson Centre have confirmed the PDA diagnosis - though we're still wating on the report. Jack's headteacher is searching for some feedback from a primary school that are dealing with, or have dealt with infant PDA effectively. The only contacts we have at the moment are for older children.

    If anyone can recommend an Infant/Primary school which could share their experience we would be very grateful.
