The code sample below demonstrates how to prevent an item with the "Application Settings" caption from being selected.

<Window ...
        xmlns:dx="http://schemas.devexpress.com/winfx/2008/xaml/core"
        xmlns:dxa="http://schemas.devexpress.com/winfx/2008/xaml/accordion">
    <Grid>
        <dxa:AccordionControl
            ItemsSource="{Binding AppMenu.MenuItems}"
            DisplayMemberPath="Caption"
            ChildrenPath="SubItems"
            CanSelectItem="AccordionControl_CanSelectItem" />
    </Grid>
</Window>
private void AccordionControl_CanSelectItem(object sender, DevExpress.Xpf.Accordion.CanSelectItemEventArgs e) {
    MenuItem item = (MenuItem)e.Item;
    if (item.Caption.Equals("Application Settings")) {
        e.CanSelect = false;
    }
}

In Unbound Mode

In unbound mode, the Item property returns an AccordionItem.

The code sample below demonstrates how to prevent an item with the "Application Settings" header from being selected.

<Window ...
        xmlns:dx="http://schemas.devexpress.com/winfx/2008/xaml/core"

        </dxa:AccordionControl>
    </Grid>
</Window>
using DevExpress.Xpf.Accordion;
...

private void AccordionControl_CanSelectItem(object sender, CanSelectItemEventArgs e) {
    AccordionItem item = (AccordionItem)e.Item;
    if (item.Header.Equals("Application Settings")) {
        e.CanSelect = false;
    }
}
