    I have one diagnosed ASD 8 year old grandson and a 17 year old grandson not ASD diagnosed who I am sure is ASD.PDA seems to be what both of them have and explains a lot of their behaviour.As I am in Australia I wondered if there was a possibilitiy of any of the day courses being available on line.Thanks Mair

    Hi Mair, welcome to the Forum.

    Although our courses aren’t available on-line we do have a series of Webinars about PDA that cover understanding PDA, mental health, how speech & language therapy can help, family resilience, sensory processing and education support & strategies for children with PDA that you may find helpful. Here’s a link:

    There is also an active awareness group in Australia that you may like to contact:

    I hope this helps.
  • Hi, I live in the UK and recently went on a course aimed at parents of autistic kids. Most of what we were taught was fairly basic stuff which I already knew (I am autistic myself so find it pretty easy to empathise with autistic behaviours) but I was able to adapt some of the stuff to help me make more sense of my son's PDA behaviours and to help him cope with his emotions. I've written a blog post on my site (Do You Sell Nipples) which I'll share here in case any of the advice in it can help you.
