My goal for this class is to leave you feeling sure and confident of whether the PDA neurotype fits your child and to gain clarity on whether a PDA-friendly approach to parenting and caregiving would be the best fit for your child and family.
In this 70-minute masterclass I provide an explanation of the 5 Characteristic Framework I believe describes all PDA individuals, regardless of age or expression.
With real life examples of each of the following characteristics, and across different age ranges (3-18), we will discuss:
- The survival drive for autonomy
- Equalizing behavior
- Need for constant nervous system coregulation
- "Masking" the threat response across contexts (school, grandparents, etc.)
- Cumulative nature of nervous system stress
We will also discuss: Introverted and Extroverted PDA expressions and how they may differ in your home
