Brilliantly written

A brilliant listen for anyone that's new to PDA and autism in general. Now I know why the traditional forms of expectation for ASD wont work on PDA students. Why don't more authorities recognise this condition??!!

Finally! An audiocourse on PDA within ASD!

Easy to understand. Detailed examples of how to apply suggested strategies. I have been applying the suggestions and have seen a significant change in my son with PDA.
