Managing & Supporting Behaviour In PDA
This 50 minute session takes a look at how we can better understand some of the behaviours seen in PDA, underlying causes and some strategies for supporting it. It will consider the importance of understanding the significance of anxiety and sensory issues, and how using a low arousal approach can help reduce the risk of escalating behaviour.
