Clare Ward will come and talk to us about her understanding of the difficulties many young people face, especially those who are neurodivergent, and how they can affect the experience of school, learning, home-life and relationships and most importantly how parents can support them.

Clare is one of the founders of Special Networks (, a multidisciplinary team which provides training, research, therapy and consultancy for individuals, schools, families and organisations. Originally trained as a Speech and Language Therapist with many years working in the NHS, Social Services and education, she uses her knowledge and experience to offer flexible solutions to families and young people, some of whom may have a diagnosis of autism or ADHD.    She co-authored and illustrated The Anxiety Workbook for Supporting Teens who Learn Differently and she has training in Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behaviour Training (DBT) which she has found really beneficial when working with parents and carers.
