Committed to Empowering Our Neurodiverse Children.
NeuroTribe UK believes in transcending identities. But to transcend an identity, we believe you have to own it first. We aim to enable children with special educational needs to identify with their conditions positively, without shame, or fear: not as a 'disability' or a 'disorder', but a different way of thinking with huge potential.
We believe that SEND practitioners and professionals, educators, policy makers and the helping professions want our children to thrive. And we believe in collaboration. But we recognize, and have experienced first-hand, the agonizing frustration of dealing with the system's current lack of knowledge, awareness and resources. So through our therapy service we aim to provide:
1. Parents, carers, and professionals with a safe, supportive, confidential and non-judgemental space to reflect and build on strategies and evidence-based practice necessary to meet the needs of neurodiverse children and young people through clinical supervision.
2. Children and Young People with a safe, shame-free space within which to work through challenges and difficult emotions and experiences in their own time, and at their own pace through our talking therapies and arts therapies.
3. A safe, confidential and non-judgemental therapeutic space for parents and carers to vent their fears and frustrations, practice self-care so they have more inner resources to continue the wonderful support they give their children, and of course, celebrate the many good times, successes and beautiful moments being an SEND parent can bring!
We believe in human connection, integration between Neurodiverse, and 'Neuro-typical' children.
And most of all, we value Respect. Not 'agreement', not 'tolerance', not 'assimilation', or 'acceptance' but real Respect. Alongside our work as practitioners, it is our aim to create social spaces where this connection and integration can happen in a safe space, founded on this core value.
