Podcasts and Videos about Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA)

These days, I believe many people like to listen to podcasts or radio as they exercise or work around the house. I like to talk about Pathological Demand Avoidance, so I thought I'd put the two together and give you some links about PDA to listen to. 

I've been wondering about starting up a PDA Podcast for a while now but not 100% sure that anyone really wants to hear me 'witter on' on a regular basis. I did thoroughly enjoy chatting with Anna Kennedy on her live All Things Autism radio show recently.

This video is one I recorded to explain about our 'lightbulb moment', finding out about the PDA profile of autism. I chat about general characteristics of those with PDA and suggest strategies which have worked for us over the past nine years.

Earlier last year I recorded two different podcasts with two different guys (who says it's just women who like to talk?!).
The first was with an autism specialist, David, on the Sensory Hour Podcast which was published over on YouTube:

Then I was thrilled when lovely James from Stories About Autism invited me on to chat with him... well, OK, maybe it was more like me harassing him until he said yes to the chat with me, but whichever way it was, it worked for me, and hopefully it worked for the spreading of information about PDA too!

A great video to watch to give you an insight of PDA from a young person who is living with it is this one by Isaac Russell:

A young girl called Chloe who shares her life with PDA over on her Facebook page (Chloe me just me) has uploaded a great Q&A session all about PDA:

Radio is another great way of getting the PDA message out there - there was a phone-in on BBC Radio Kent, where life with PDA and school refusal was discussed with another parent to a girl with PDA. 

Over on the PDA Society website there are several links to webinars and videos which are all very educational and helpful. Visit the page or watch their Understanding PDA webinar on YouTube here:

More videos can be found on the bluemillicent channel; this is the first in a series over there:

My intention is to keep this post updated with any new links to radio shows or podcasts which involve Pathological Demand Avoidance, so please do let me know in the comments if you hear of any which could be added here.
