We've heard about the PDA conference in Nottingham

    now would you lovely ladies consider holding one in the South coast or even London???

    I think there could be enough parents and professionals down this way who would love to have your expertise on managing children with avoidance difficulties, I for one would certainly benefit from it and i'm sure there would be many more.

    I have also spoken with our Autism out-reach and they would be interested in coming if it was local, notts is about 4 hrs drive for us and 5 and a half hr train journey and I guess this may not be possible for you as many of you have your own families and it is quite a journey.

    Would the Maze group consider this request as it would certainly be very beneficial to so many of us who could not make it to Notts. :lol:

    Yes of course we would. Of course we couldnt do it for nothing as the printing alone is pricy, but for a reasonable fee to The Maze and expenses then yes of course. Anne is already working on some info for parents about Siblings to add to what we are already doing and we've already been talking about making the training more accessable.

    We can be contacted at if anyone wants to chat about it.

    Hello everyone

    I am new to the site and agree that a conference down in the south east/London would be of enormous benefit to parents like myself with a newly diagnosed child with PDA and the professional teaching staff that have to teach them.

    Still slogging it out with my local LEA for a statement and what is the best school placement as he is exceptionally bright so any additional information on management of children with this condition would be gratefully received.

    Something here in the South would be fantastic!
