I wrote about Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) recently as part of World Autism Awareness Day. However, as today is PDA Awareness Day, I couldn’t let the day go by without writing a quick update on the subject!
Firstly, I want to say a huge congratulations to Fiona (my SIL) for successfully running the Milton Keynes marathon at the start of this month. She did amazing and raised a whooping Â£1290 in aid of the PDA Society. Well done Fi!
This is a photo of Squiggle running alongside her for a few metres to cheer her on, I absolutely adore this picture, and check out the message on the back of her top too! (Squiggle was thrilled when she saw it!!!)
The other thing I want to share is PDA Society‘s brand new ambassador…
If you can, please share some info on PDA to help increase awareness and understanding, and/ or change your profile picture to the giant panda logo for today.
And don’t forget to share this post too! Thank you 🙂
