PDA & Autism Nurture Conference A recording of this brilliant online event.
On the 10th July 2020 a group of like minded people came together to present The Autism and PDA Collaboration Conference. The day consisted of presentations from young people with PDA, an autistic academic, a professional and a parent. This was a fantastic event, the different perspectives from the speaker made it feel very comprehensive. We hope you enjoy the recordings. *Please be aware of some language that may not be suitable for children in some presentations. Parental discretion is advised.
