NEW BLOG POST - TO HELP CARERS AND TEENS
  • Hi, new blog post up about the 'traditions' of PDA for me in my childhood, would be greatly appreciated if you could check it out and leave any comments or email me (abbibh101@gmail.com) this one should help any parents, carers, or suffers themselves. If you relate to any of them please please let me know!! https://teenagestressesblog.wordpress.com/2017/01/14/pda-traditions-for-me-anyway/
    Check it out!! Xx thank you xx
  • Hi Abbi,
    I have just read your blog post. First of all, I'd like to say - it is very well written, entertaining and also informative for a parent of an autistic teenager.
    My son was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder and ADHD when he was 10. He is 17 now. I have only found out about PDA very recently and I am still trying to explore if PDA would better explain his difficulties than his original diagnosis does
    Keep going and I will keep reading. It will definitely help me to gain better insight.
    Thank you!

  • I sucked my thumb until I started secondary school aged 12! And (shh don't tell anyone) I sometimes still do if very stressed, but only in bed or somewhere equally private.
