Query: Hi everyone! I have an interesting piece coming up on pathological demand avoidance in ASD. I’m looking for quotes on:

  1. What is pathological demand avoidance (PDA) and how does it relate to ASD?
  2. What causes PDA?
  3. How can PDA look in ASD? (Any unique presentations?)
  4. What are some coping strategies for adults and children experiencing PDA in ASD?

As always, I need a link to your professional bio page on a private practice site, commercial employer, or academia. I can’t use bios from general internet directories or competitor content sites. The website you submit must at least have your name and credentials on it, preferably with an extended bio. I do prioritize submissions with the answers already provided in
the reply, and I usually use 2-3 experts in each article. If you’d like to learn more about me and what I write, you can visit my author pages:
