Building confidence
and connection

Free online sessions for ADHD and autistic young people in years 7, 8 and 9 who experience school  phobia or emotionally based school avoidance

Sessions available Mon-Weds 3pm and 6pm.

What we do

As a neurodivergent team of parents, educators and wellbeing experts, we understand the unique challenges that neurodivergent young people face, and how distressing it can be seeing your child unhappy, anxious, or fearful about attending school.

That’s why we’re running a series of FREE online sessions over the next few weeks.

Over the next few weeks we will be running a series of 3 different sessions for young people in years 7, 8 and 9

These sessions will give young people the opportunity to

  • Connect with others who understand and share their struggles
     

  • Understand the unique challenges they face as neurodivergent people
     

  • Take part in tasks and learn techniques that will help improve their comfort and confidence.

"This is one of the few things I've done that has actually been written by and for people like me"
Sam, previous workshop participant

For parents we’re offering:

  • An introductory one-to-one session exploring your individual child’s needs, so we can tailor our group support appropriately
     

  • Online parent workshops where you can meet parents like you, and learn evidence-based techniques to support your child.

 

This is a supportive space, where we respect every child and family’s needs. No formal diagnosis needed for young people to attend!

Important Information
Please read before booking

  • For safeguarding reasons, a caregiver must be present in the same room while their young person is participating.
     

  • There’s no pressure to be on camera and we use a range of communication techniques. There is no need to talk, or keep
    cameras or microphones on if that is not comfortable for the individual.

     

  • All sessions are run by someone who is themselves ADHD or autistic, and the content is evidence-based and reviewed by mental health clinicians.
     

  • Sessions  will be held in small groups of 6 to 8 young people.
