I’ve also heard an alternative name for PDA, “Pervasive Demand for Autonomy.” Sounds a lot less medical and scary than “Pathological Demand Aboidance.”

An Autistic person not having a strong opinion about Autism Speaks is like a Jewish person not having a strong opinion about the German Nazi Party or a Black person not having a strong opinion about the KKK.

I think there could definitely be a sensory aspect to this as well as possible jealousy. Perhaps something to do with the sound of eating mushy foods, or the baby's crying?

I love to sing, and took a few singing lessons when I was in high school, though I never had a great technique. Couple that with me having a baritone voice and a love for 80s rock bands like Bon Jovi and Journey and you get permanent vocal damage…my perfect pitch gone to waste.
