Autistic/ADHD Girls Monthly Workshop & Support Group: Inclusion – Zoom

A workshop and support group for families of girls with Autism and/or ADHD whether diagnosed or not.

Topic: Rewriting the narrative – Lessons about inclusion from autistic adolescent girls who stop attending school.

Children who stop attending school are often called truants or school refusers, placing the reason for their absence as a problem with the child. This session proposes a different way of interpreting their absence, by sharing lessons learnt from research with 10 autistic girls who stopped attending mainstream secondary schools. It presents some of their experiences, strategies that helped and those that did not, and their recommendations for change. Although focused on the views of autistic young people, the findings may be relevant for other neurodivergent young people who stop attending school, and the staff working with them.

Date: Thursday 25th February

Time: 7pm – 8.30pm

Cost: £5 for Berkshire families, £10 for non-Berkshire families, £20 for Professionals.


The workshop will be led by PSC specialist parenting practitioners Ruth Moyse, Mary van der Merwe and Amy Plumer.
