NAS Spectrum Ball, 1st Oct 2012, Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel, London


NAS Spectrum Ball on Monday night was a fantastic evening – Wonderful atmosphere, lovely people, scrummy food, too much wine, live+silent auction, entertainment was outstanding. I went along to represent all those children/adults on the autistic spectrum with PDA. Helps to remind people that autism is not only about Aspergers and Classic – Nestling between the two is PATHOLOGICAL DEMAND AVOIDANCE SYNDROME. The Supremes filled the room with motown memories, and later ‘Stopped in the name of PDA’ for photos to help raise awareness. With love and thanks x

STOP in the name of PDA

What a fantastic evening, truly one to remember. Well organised, great food, incredible music by Spandau Ballets Tony Hadley, and loads of money raised for autism research.

I spoke to many there who knew or were involved with autism, but as always had never heard of Pathological Demand Avoidance Syndrome (PDA).  I wore with pride my PDA t-shirt that my son had drawn and was able to speak with Tony Hadley about PDA, he showed genuine concern and agreed to photos to help our plight – Very much appreciated.

With thanks to Tony Hadley for listening
