Advice needed how to fix a friendship
  • I don't have PDA a very good friend of mine does we have recently fallen out and I would like to try and repair the friendship I'm not sure the best steps to do this so it would be beneficial to get advice on how to to go about 6 in the friendship of a person that has PDA and has fallen out with me I have various other people that they know that I can talk to to get messages to them and stuff but it would be good to fix this and begin to find out the easiest and best approach for myself to do list I'm not on the autistic spectrum or have it myself so any advice would be gratefully appreciated

    Hi 85thday, welcome to our Forum. What a wonderful friend you are to recognise that you'd like to repair your friendship and find the best way to do this.

    Have you seen the 'adult life' pages we have on our website (https://www.pdasociety.org.uk/adult-life)? Perhaps understanding a little more about how your friend may be feeling might help and there is some good information listed here particularly about managing relationships. Remembering to try to be fairly indirect and learning more about language that can help might also be useful, many PDAers also prefer to write, email, or text in preference to talking but hopefully from your friendship to date you'll have an idea of their preferred approach.

    I hope this helps a little but if you'd like to chat to someone more about this you'd be welcome to contact our enquiry line: https://www.pdasociety.org.uk/contact

    I do help that you're able to reach out to your friend and you can find a way forward.
