PDA Society
The PDA Society provides advice and information for parents and professionals about Pathological Demand Avoidance Syndrome.  This is a guide for GP’s, nurses, Health Visitors, Social Workers and other primary care workers who are likely to first come into contact with children on the autism spectrum and need to be alert to early signs and parental concerns. ASDs are spectrum conditions so some overlap within these areas and diagnoses are inevitable.
