Pathological Demand Avoidance

PDA or Pathological Demand Avoidance is a newly recognized presentation of ASD, particularly in the UK, though now gaining recognition in the US. For parents of children with PDA, there is no other diagnosis that quite fits, and it has been sorely misunderstood for too long by educators, physicians and clinicians alike.

Nicole Story, EDS, MED, LMFT, LMHC, Psychotherapist & Clinical Director is a highly trained clinician (both US and UK/Ireland), Clinical Supervisor to over a dozen agencies and mother of 2, familiar with the  familial, emotional, social, behavioral and academic issues surrounding PDA for the child and the family.
