Cardiff date for NAS
THE National Autistic Society (NAS) will be running a one day PDA conference at the Mercure Holland House Hotel, Cardiff on 4th November 2014.
Pathological demand avoidance syndrome (PDA) is increasingly recognised as part of the autism spectrum. It is a lifelong disability that affects boys and girls equally. People with PDA need different amounts of support depending on how their condition affects them. As a result, people with PDA usually experience increased difficulty throughout their lives. They often imitate inappropriate behaviour or come across as overbearing, and may exhibit an obsessive desire to dominate socially.
This behaviour can be extremely disruptive within classroom settings and may make for a chaotic and distressing home life. For more information visit www.autism.org.uk
