Kyra, Social Worker

Our foundation is built on experience and empathy.

We are researchers, educators, therapists, and most importantly, parents who have navigated the complexities of school refusal.   Because of this, we know the emotional toll it takes on families and understand the unique challenges you face.

We're happy to offer more than just information. Our online School Refusal Recovery Course is a comprehensive support system, a beacon in the storm.

School Refusal Recovery provide:

  • Actionable strategies: We equip you with practical tools and techniques.  Our course will help you create your child's gradual exposure plan, along with communication strategies, parenting tips, and anxiety management tips all designed to empower you and your child.
  • Expert guidance: Learn from our team of professionals through video modules, live Q&A sessions, and downloadable resources.  We've put years of research into creating a course that works.
  • Peer support: Connect with other parents who "get it." Share experiences, find encouragement, and build a network of understanding.
  • Individualized attention: Get personalized feedback and support, ensuring the strategies you apply work for your unique family situation.

This course is excellent, I really enjoyed learning the psychological terms and the application of theory.

I found learning the background reasons for school refusal really helpful and all the strategies were great, and all evidence based.
