Parent Chat Group
No agenda, or topic, just a safe place to connect with other parents or guardians of neurodivergent young people. Share challenges, experiences and advice on how to support your young person.
Facilitated by the Uncommon Team, who can offer advice where appropriate, it's a relaxed place to receive practical advice, support and reassurance. Or just share a coffee!

How our courses work
🙃 Designed for different learning styles
Learning comes naturally when young people feel at home. That's why we've designed our sessions to be relaxed and welcoming. Whether young people need to stretch, move around, or even fidget, they’re free to do what they need to engage best.
🌈 Neurodivergent led
Each session is run by two neurodivergent facilitators. They lead by example, sharing their own experiences of growing up neurodivergent. We create an environment where being neurodivergent isn't just understood – it's celebrated.
😻 Engaging curriculum
Our sessions are packed with valuable insights about being neurodivergent. We break down complex concepts into simple easy to understand ideas and use visual guides, making learning interactive and fun.
👾 Choose your own interaction
How young people participate is entirely up to them. Keep cameras on or off, share thoughts verbally or in writing, or just sit back and watching. We even offer an anonymous contribution option for those who prefer it.
🥽 Safety first
All of our team members are trained in safeguarding and have their Enhanced DBS Checks done. At the start of our session, we ask for an adult to pop onto the camera for a quick hello - this helps us know an adult is nearby. But don't worry, for our young participants, there's no camera pressure. They can choose to be on or off camera - whatever makes them feel at ease!
👬 Parents, Join us!
While participation isn't mandatory for parents, we love it when parents join in. Feel free to join us and observe, or even interact alongside your young people.
