What we will cover in this webinar



What School Avoidance or School Can't looks like and why that behaviour makes sense to your autistic child.  We explain what is going on in their mind and body to create this behaviour and how you can approach it with empathy and understanding.


Breaking it down

School avoidance can feel like a really complex issue and often it is, but we break it down into 6 different categories you and your child can work on together.  There are many strategies you can implement to alleviate the grassroots challenges causing this behaviour.


Trauma & Pain-Based Behaviour

It is so important to use a trauma-informed approach when working with Autistic children, especially in the context of School Can't.  We will give you a greater understanding of this approach and ways to implement it at home and in the classroom.


Advocacy & Alternatives

If you struggle to communicate with your child's school or feel you are not being heard, we introduce you to a toolkit from the Australian Centre for Disability Law and an alternative schooling option that may work better for your family.

Your Webinar Host:
Jackie Hall - Professional Counsellor & PSC Founder

Hi, I am Jackie Hall, Founder of Parental Stress Centre, ACA-accredited counselor, EMDR therapist. five-time author, and mother who has been in the pits of despair as a parent.

I studied everything I could get my hands on and what I learned truly changed my family's life, and it can do the same for you.

From my time working with complex-needs Autistic children in residential youth care, I became passionate about translating complex issues into manageable, actionable strategies for neurodiverse families.

The moment you start to understand what’s really going on for a child, things begin to get easier. Not overnight, but bit by bit. 

I jam so much valuable information into this webinar you will walk away with a plethora of practical, evidence-based techniques that actually work and, importantly, it is delivered by someone who actually understands neurodivergent children and families.
