Training

We want to help more people increase their skills, knowledge and confidence when supporting neurodivergent children and young people, including those who may have learning difficulties. We do this by providing a range of training resources and events.

You can view our current training programme here but if you’d like to talk to us about your training needs, please contact training@mindroom.org or call 0131 370 6730. Our training is delivered by staff with lived experience of neurodiversity.
