After School: Helping Your Autistic Child Move On from School Trauma

School has gone wrong for your child. You've spent years trying to make it work, and now it's clear that something different is required. You've found another way - but you can't move on. Your child refuses to talk about what happened, or they avoid any reminders of school. They get angry and frustrated at the slightest thing.

In this mini course Naomi will talk about school trauma, how it occurs, what makes it worse and how parents can help. You'll leave with a new understanding of what has gone on for your child, why they are still affected by the past, and some ideas of what to do. This course will combine psychological theory with practical strategies and ideas.


This course is available to watch for 12 months after purchase.

It is suitable for children with and without a diagnosis

What People Are Saying:

Brilliant webinar. You make something complex feel more understandable and give us practical strategies to take away.

I really enjoyed the webinar...I've already seen a positive effect on my son's behaviour. He seems generally happier and less angry.

Probably one of the most interesting insightful sessions on anxiety in autistic children that I've seen...It really helped me understand my child better
