About Me

I am looking for people to support me in my new home in Nuneaton and inmy local community. I am a woman in my 30's with a diagnosis of PathologicalDemand Avoidance (PDA) which is a form of autism and a mild / moderate learningdisability.

I can present with some complex behaviours of concern.

It is important to me that I have a staff team that understands autismand PDA that are patient and understanding. I need consistent support andencouragement, but it is also important to let me progress at my own pace andfor staff to be able to recognise when I need space.

Language is crucial, and it is important that staff do not use words useas "no" and "don't" and my initial reaction to questions is likely to be "no",so my staff team need to be creative in how they present choices to me.

I enjoy lots of activities in the community but currently I am onlyaccessing them with support from my Mum. I would like to be able to develop agood relationship with my support team so I can feel safe in the communitywithout my Mum.
