This is a short blog post to add my recent twitter musings on matters relating to Demand-Avoidance Phenomena (DAP) and autism over the last three months. There are threads on many different topics on DAP research and literature adhering to typical research and practice standards. I end the blog post with links to recent essays and conference talks. I am due to deliver a conference talk “Demand-Avoidance Phenomena (“Pathological”/ “Extreme” Demand Avoidance): It’s four schools of thought, and how you may conceptualise it?” on the 19th of November 2021. I hope my work is useful to others.
Before moving providing pdfs of my recent reflections on Twitter, is a new 3D model for Demand-Avoidance Phenomena, the pdf explaining the model is on the 04th of October 2021.
