Would You DISCO?

I wanted to bring to your attention a great new paper that has been published in the European Child & Adolescent Journal titled, “Identifying features of ‘pathological demand avoidance’ using the Diagnostic Interview for Social and Communication Disorders (DISCO)“.

You can find the paper linked through our /resources/links/ page here.

From my non-professional perspective, what is exciting about the approach outlined in this paper is the connection between an existing clinical assessment tool (DISCO) and PDA. This should improve the ability for clinicians to separate PDA cases from other psychiatric conditions due to the pervasive use of DISCO.
