Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) Advocate

This accredited one-day course on Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) is designed for professionals who want to gain a deeper understanding of PDA diagnosis and how schools and settings can best support children and young people.

The course covers reasonable adjustments that settings can adopt to ensure young people with PDA can thrive, and is fully interactive, with resources designed to help you write support plans. The course explores the complexity of the condition and its variations, and discusses the most up-to-date research and how it can be used on a day-to-day basis with people displaying PDA features.

Professionals often struggle with supporting pupils with PDA due to a lack of understanding about how the condition presents, and how others around the young person behave towards them. This course looks into the 'team around the pupil' and how to cooperate with each other for a more joined-up approach, which is key to success.
