PDA'ERS ARE POWERFULLY DETERMINED AUTODIDACTS

June 13, 2019

Know our autistic Demand Avoidant strengths!

 

In our Autistic Culture, our nature is to see the best in others, their strengths, abilities and best qualities. We understand that everyone is valuable. When we think of ours, or another's autism, we first think of our beautiful minds attributes. 

 

Our natural characteristics listed below are nurtured, celebrated, enjoyed, and strengthened.  

 

They are at the forefront and the foundations of my child's learning and future way of living. Our beautiful autodidact autistic minds drive us to know, investigate, research, study, analyse and master our expertise, skills or subjects. We have a powerfully determined innate study skill.

 

Specific subjects and outcomes come as a result of our autodidactic self-directed learning nature. 

 

We have an innate ability to recognise other autistics, identifying and relating to the list below, which we understand vary for each autistic individual.

Autodidacticism is natural to my child and I like the emu is to the Australian bushland.

Our children are seen and listened to. We welcome them to be with us, join us in conversing and lead the direction of our discussions. We open one another's minds, stretching our interests or understandings and view of the world and those around us.

 

We are a part of their conversations, exploration and questions. We assist them without over-riding their wonder, imaginations or personally created and chosen projects. It is never too early or too late or too inconvenient to learn, to know more or experiment. We are free from constraint of time or others ideas of what is important. To us whatever interests us or finds our curiosity is important. Our children require us to be present and excited about all possible real life and natural learning opportunities that are available to us all day.
