Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA):
A rare and unknown subtype on the autism spectrum.
An anxiety-driven need to be in control.
Unlike classic autism, these children resist routines and mask their autism. It looks like defiance but culminates in a meltdown. Sound familiar?
At first, children with PDA can be hard to understand and a challenge to raise. But with love and the right parenting style, they can also be an absolute joy. Trust me, I know... I'm raising one!
