This Tuesday, 15th May, at 6.30am, Judy Eaton of Help 4 Psychology has been invited to the studio of BBC Radio 5 Live (UK) to discuss PDA (pathological demand avoidance), and help raise awareness of this autistic profile.

According to the PDA Society, an organisation that provides information and support for parents, families and teachers, PDA is currently recognised as an autistic profile. Key areas of concern for the individual are: ‘An anxiety driven need to be in control and avoid other people’s demands’, and ‘An Intolerance of Uncertainty.’

(The interview should be available on the BBC i-player afterwards as part of 5 Live’s programming.)
