PDA Practice Guidance

This is the first publication for clinicians on the practicalities of identifying a PDA profile. It provides substantial detail on the things to look for, the experience of conducting assessments and how to differentiate PDA from other potential causes of demand avoidance.

As is always the case, practice is running ahead of research, and so to have gathered the consensus view of a large group of practitioners will be valuable for all clinicians interested in assessment of autism and neurodevelopmental conditions more generally. It relates to both children / young people and adults. It is hoped that this Guidance will in turn stimulate much-needed further research.
