Dr. Wenn B. Lawson (PhD) CPsychol AFBPsS MAP
This wonderful, insightful, practical book beautifully explains PDA, why it exists and how best to offer support. It clearly separates demand avoidance from oppositional behaviour, explains why traditional therapies fail, and endorses current thinking on interoception, neurodiversity and universal design. At last supporting our PDAers through fostering safe therapeutic relationships is fully explained!
Ruth Fidler, Education Consultant, complex autism
An outstanding blend of practical advice and theoretical understanding. This book will be an excellent resource for anyone supporting children and young people with PDA in a therapeutic role.
