Being a mum to a teenage PDA son is life-changing, and at times, utterly heart-wrenching experience. Seeing Harry through his own candid, entertaining and diplomatic lens, fills me with hope, quiet optimism, and (most importantly) confidence for my own son's future. Thank you Harry for your insight. --Natasha, PDA mum
As a clinician who has worked with complex young people and adults with Autism throughout my working life, I was delighted to be asked to review this book. I read it in one sitting. It is the most articulate, honest, entertaining (and sometimes funny) book about PDA I have read. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to gain an insight into how this profile impacts upon individuals, their families and those who work with or are involved in their education. --Dr Judy Eaton, Consultant Clinical Psychologist

No two people with PDA are the same but I feel like my son has written to me from the future. It’s given me confidence that what I do is the right thing. Thank you harry I’m bursting with gratitude.
The book demonstrates how many of the systems in which we live; fail to support children and adults with PDA. It shows how, without the very distinct kind of support children and adults with PDA need, systems such as school and work can, unintentionally, cause immense harm.
Harry brings to life how PDA is so much more than demand avoidance and just how painful it can be to battle with a different and greatly misunderstood kind of Neurology. By contrast he also skillfully shares how, when a person with PDA is afforded sufficient freedom to learn and grow, greatness can be achieved.
Parents and professionals alike, have an opportunity to gain much greater insight into PDA, by learning from the content Harry so generously shares in his book.
Harry has an amazing ability to communicate and shows empathy and insight beyond his years. Everyone can learn something from this book.
Written with real honesty, I found it moving and it gives a real picture of Harry's life.
A must read, I have recommended to everyone.
A fantastic insight into this poorly understood condition.
