Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) is now widely recognised as a distinct profile of autism which is present in some people on the spectrum.  The PDA Society use their giant panda ambassador to explain that individuals with PDA need very specific support (different from others with autism) in order to thrive and without it may have an increased likelihood of poor outcomes.
