In order to better understand and support PDAers, it takes many people sharing their ideas and experiences. Please find a signposting list below which will grow over time. Happy Learning!

PDA stands for Persistent or Pervasive Drive for Autonomy or Pathological Demand Avoidance.

I’m just getting started and wondering who else to add? There are so many awesome people out there and sometimes I might accidentally miss someone or an organisation off. Who else would you add?
