Welcome to the West Berks PDA Support Group!

PDA stands for Pathological Demand Avoidance.

Its a form of autism that isn’t that well known yet, though awareness is steadily increasing.  Your can read more about what PDA actually is elsewhere (www.pdasociety.org.uk) as this website is more about our support group, which is for parents and carers of children with PDA here in West Berkshire.

Here you can read all about the group, find details of forthcoming meetings, and find links to some really useful resources and local services that I’ve personally found invaluable.  Please click on the menu links above to explore the site.

And don’t hesitate to get in touch, join our mailing list to keep up to date on what’s going on locally of interest to PDA families, or come along to a support group meeting and make some new friends who ‘get’ PDA – and feel better for it!

Hope to see you soon,

Leila   (Founder of the West Berks PDA Support Group)
