Demand avoidance can be a feature of autism. It is also an aspect of a specific autistic profile called pathological demand avoidance or PDA. I experience anxiety around demands. So I made this video to talk about demand avoidance.
Anxiety related to demands makes completely tasks and attending appointments difficult. I use strategies to overcome this aspect of my autism. In this video I’m talking about PDA. I also share my experiences. As well as some of the strategies I use to manage it.
