This one-day course, delivered by Jilly Davis, is for school staff who are supporting children with PDA (Pathological Demand Avoidance). The day aims to develop your understanding of PDA, including how to adapt your approaches when working with children with the profile or diagnosis.
The day will give consideration to how PDA differs from other autism profiles and how to use positive educational approaches and strategies in order to teach children with PDA or a profile more indicative of PDA. There will be a focus on how to re-engage children in learning, to be able to tolerate the everyday demands of school life and to help them reach their full educational potential.
This course is designed for staff working in school and is particularly relevant for classroom teachers, SENCO’s, teaching assistants, support workers and residential staff.
