Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA)

Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA)

Liverpool, Premier Inn, Albert Dock, Thursday 14th July

This training particularly focusses on the understanding that individuals with Pathological Demand Avoidance may communicate/present differently to neurotypical learners but can still achieve their potential with the implementation of appropriate interventions. Essentially, I want colleagues to see through the eyes of the learners as well as having the strategies.

The training will include:
Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) Training Course:
Strategies for the effective inclusion of learners with PDA: a day course, designed to successfully include learners with PDA and related conditions.

This fun, informative and effective workshop provides each delegate with a deeper knowledge and understanding of the needs of individuals with PDA and provides the skills necessary to create appropriate interventions.

What to expect on the training…
An overview of how the impairments affecting those with Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) may cause difficulties (What is PDA? The key features of PDA).
Meeting the needs of those with PDA. Some interactive activities and simple and effective strategies designed to meet a range of needs based on the impairments.
Strategies and interventions for adapting the sensory environment to meet the behavioural needs of individuals with PDA.
