This is a relatively new term for a profile under the Autism umbrella. Autistic children often 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 we can help them move forward.
