Abstract
Pathological Demand Avoidance Syndrome (PDA) is a developmental disorder that is being increasingly recognized as part of the autism spectrum. The main characteristic is a continued resistance to the ordinary demands of life through strategies of social manipulation, which originates from an anxiety-driven need to be in control.
This straightforward guide is written collaboratively by professionals and parents to give a complete overview of PDA. Starting with an exploration into the syndrome, it goes on to answer the immediate questions triggered when a child is first diagnosed, and uses case examples throughout to illustrate the impact of the condition on different areas of the child's life. Early intervention options and workable strategies for managing PDA positively will make day-to-day life easier for the child, their family and peers. New problems faced in the teenage years and how to assist a successful transition from adolescence to adulthood are also tackled. The book concludes with a valuable resources list.
Full of helpful guidance and support, this user-friendly introductory handbook is essential reading for families, carers and anyone who knows a child with PDA

"Dear Kit and Scully, your mission is to learn about autism. On this quest you will need to investigate the human brain and learn about diversity."
What do you know about autism? Whether you know a little or a lot, you are invited to explore your understanding of the autism spectrum and discover something new by joining detectives Scully and Kit on their investigation. As Scully and Kit interview six ordinary children, follow the clues and see if you can guess which of them are autistic.

A feeding disorder is a sensory-motor disorder and should be treated accordingly. This involves analyzing the child's oral movement patterns as well as his ability to register and regulate sensory information. Strategies for a Successful Mealtime provides a structured oral movement and feeding program that will help children work through aversion to food textures, limited diet, and difficulty accepting food utensils. Parents, caretakers, and teachers are important participants in the child's treatment program.
