Statement from Achieving for Children on PDA
AfC follow the guidelines in the DSM-V or ICD-10 manuals of diagnostic criteria currently used in the UK. These guidelines do not recognise PDA as a condition and therefore diagnostic services such as CAMHS would not make a separate diagnosis of PDA and do not fund independent assessments. However we recognise that some parents and carers may have an interest in understanding more about this subject. We have therefore included information on PDA on this website to meet this need but for reference only.
