Previous Action

We have raised the issue of the recognition of Pathological Demand Avoidance syndrome with Scottish Borders Council. This has been in the context of individual cases involving our children and young people in the education system. We have also presented details to further education institutions and to parts of the NHS.

We have discussed better awareness and recognition of the syndrome with the PDA Society and among parents in the Borders and further afield in both Scotland and the UK where children and young adults have already been diagnosed with the condition.

We have raised the question of proper recognition of the syndrome with MSPs and via them the Scottish Government calling unsuccessfully for a coherent response in terms of both public policy and its implementation.
