Tired of feeling like you’re alone?

When my children were young I felt so alone. The concept of being neuroaffirming was not around and the professional advice did not align with my values. Advice often went against my training in how human beings flourish. With years of training in attachment, development and relational safety, I developed a responsive way to parent that was based on neuroscience and developing nervous system regulation. 

I want you to get credible, relevant evidence-based support that is neuroaffirming and based on lived experience. 

So I combined what I have learned from: 

  • 20+ years in the educational and disability sectors
  • 17 years of parenting to two multi-neurodivergent children¬†
  • embracing¬†my authentic multi-neurodivergent identity¬†

Into an easy-to-follow online course with regular group mentoring and community support. I help you to become a neurodivergent-affirming parent.

Our neurodivergent affirming approach is woven through everything we do, including how we support you.

I am in your corner, providing neuroaffirming advice and continued support to move forward and create the connected family you desire. 

As parents, we are here to support our children to understand who they are, how the world works and how to be the healthiest version of themselves within it. This is a difficult task when the world is not designed to meet neurodivergent needs, but it is not impossible and I can show you how!

I would love you to join me in our Dynamic Parenting Community so we can go on this parenting journey together!

Dynamic Parenting is neurodivergent-affirming for parents, so you get to experience what it feels like to recieve the support practices you are taught in the course.

Group coaching is designed to be neuroaffirming for you-if you turn up late, in your PJs, need your camera off, want to type questions rather then talk, want to email questions beforehand in case you forget, eat and listen, fidget and listen, walk and move-it is all accepted fully and we encourage you to meet your needs. We are here to support you and you can show up as you are and be accepted. We are neuroaffirming on all levels at Dynamic Parenting and we have a high percentage of neurodivergent parents in our community.

During these online sessions, we discuss a wide range of neurodivergent life topics including the program content, what has come up during the week at home, school or education, and therapy.

Parents love these calls because it gives them another opportunity to connect with Kate, and to ensure they’re on track and moving forward.

We can’t wait to connect and grow with you!

Hi, I'm Kate.

"We are all on this parenting journey together and we really do need each other's support. We are all told parenting is hard, but nobody prepares us for parenting children who are developing differently in a society that doesn't understand them or how to meet their basic needs!

  • Do you feel like you give everything to support your child but feel like it's not enough?
  • Are you left exhausted and feel like you are failing as a parent even though you are doing your best?¬†

I, too, have felt this on a deep level and it was a sign that I needed a new framework to understand my family's needs.

Autistic & Neurodivergent Culture

  • masking, unmasking, and autistic identity
  • autistic burnout, shutdowns, and inertia¬†
  • neurodivergent trust, safety, and communication
  • supporting sensory and emotional regulation needs
  • executive functioning and information processing¬†
  • problem-solving using a neurodivergent affirming framework
  • educational support and recommendations¬†
  • advocacy and teaching self-advocacy¬†
  • co-regulation and self-regulation
  • addressing stress-based behaviours

Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA)

  • lived experience of PDA training from¬†a PDA worldview¬†
  • how demands impact the nervous system
  • recognising, managing, and changing demands¬†
  • PDA¬†stress-based behaviours
