Shownotes

Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) is a condition that may eventually gain recognition in the United States, though it may take time to be included in diagnostic manuals like the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM). And with the increasing prevalence of autism, currently affecting 1 in 27 boys and 1 in 44 births overall, conditions like PDA are likely to receive more attention.

The growing awareness of PDA highlights the importance of understanding its distinct features and providing tailored support for individuals affected by this condition. In this episode, we explore the signs, symptoms, and implications of PDA, shedding light on how it impacts children in different aspects.
