2 review articles have been published in 2018 and I have found a new book review for Understanding Pathological Demand Avoidance. The 2 reviews both do not include the autistic perspectives or from Disability Studies and Critical Autism Studies perspectives. I will update this in the summer when more PDA articles are due to be published.
