Demand Avoidance

Demand Avoidance Profile

Demand avoidance can occur for different reasons. According to the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines, demand avoidance is one of the possible features of autism. People with a demand avoidant profile are driven to avoid everyday demands and expectations to an extreme extent. This  is often, but not always, accompanied by high levels of anxiety (NAS).

Individuals with a demand avoidance profile share difficulties with others on the autism spectrum in social aspects of interaction, communication and imagination. However, the central difficulty for people with a similar profile is the way they are driven to avoid demands and expectations. This is often linked to an anxiety based need to be in control (NAS).
