About the Event
Join us for this webinar on Navigating Pathological Demand Avoidance and Family Life' with Kristy Forbes Autistic support specialist for neurodivergent people and their families and professionals.
Kristy will explore and unpack family life and navigating PDA and discuss:
- feeling out of your depth as a parent when attempting to guide your child to thrive
- navigating constant disapproval, rejection and judgement of your parenting from others
Kristy is formally identified Autistic, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) as well as being a parent to four neurodivergent children, all with varying neurodivergent experience and expression including being nonspeaking, apraxia, dyspraxia, tourettes and PDA.
She has the unique experience and insight of many perspectives: the teacher, the support specialist, the parent, the partner and the neurodivergent person (including the child she once was!).
Kristy understands the genuine challenges neurodivergent people and their families face, and the often misunderstood and undermined position they are in. Her passion is to support families raising autistic children to thrive. No matter where they’ve been, no matter the trauma or crisis they find themselves in.
