Autism, Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA), Neurodiversity: these are the buzz words today in many disability conversations. What do these terms mean to you? Do you know someone who is Autistic? If not, does the word frighten you? It neither predicts nor limits how successful a child will become. Come and learn about neurodiversity, neurodivergence and how an autistic neurology may impact an individual and their family. This will include an introduction to Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA), a new profile in Autism. Autistic children often appear to refuse to comply with requests or demands especially for things they don’t prefer over ones they do. Those with a PDA profile experience severe anxiety over similar situations but also include everyday demands such as hygiene, eating, dressing, and attending school. Parents and educators often hear “I can’t” and interpret it as “I won’t”. Let’s see what is really happening for these children, how they respond and how can we help them move forward
