About this Event
Date: August 3rd
By courtesy of Westwood Primary School, Harry Thompson and a few other stalwart PDA activists, The PDA Experience. is coming to March, Cambridgeshire!
Join Harry Thompson for a morning with him and fellow ‘experts by experience’, Danielle Jata-Hall, Steph Curtis and Isaac Russell, for talks and conversations on the topic of Pathological Demand Avoidance – a behaviour profile within the autism spectrum. Never an easy topic, but expect an enlightening and honest account of life with Pathological Demand Avoidance.
The day will be kicked off by fellow PDA parent bloggers (BritMums 2018 award finalists), Steph Curtis and Danielle Jata-Hall, who will be supporting and sharing their experiences in raising PDA children.
The very eloquent author and speaker (and adult living with PDA), Harry Thompson, will then deliver a talk in which he will offer unique, descriptive insights into PDA from a first person perspective. This will be followed by a Q & A session where you will have the opportunity to ask Harry whatever you want.
And finally, Isaac Russell (also an adult living with PDA) will share his honest and profound insights into PDA and how this puzzling condition affects him.
There will be opportunities to network after the event.
Doors open at 13.45 for a 14.00 start. The programme will finish at around17.00, with refreshments and an opportunity to meet and chat with the speakers afterwards.
We do hope you are able to make this wonderful opportunity to engage with some of the people who are most able to explain how life works – and doesn’t – with Pathological Demand Avoidance.
*If you are a parent hoping to attend, and you are planning on bringing your child, please note that our cut-off age for under 18s is 13 years old. Thank you.*
