All this month's resources in one place...
Every month, our team of experts spend hours distilling our knowledge and the latest research into engaging, easy-to-digest video learning modules and printable toolkits. This year, we are even adding a couple of links to podcasts we know you will love, too!
Feedback from you, our lovely members, has been that is it quite overwhelming and you are not sure where to start.
So in 2023, we have decided to create a monthly resource pack that you can work through at your own speed. You can track your progress in the progress bar above, and – the icing on the cake – if you complete all the elements before the end of this month, we will award you 100 extra sparkly points for you to redeem against purchases on the site (including your monthly subs)!
Get started now to make the most of these amazing resources.

How to Practice Self-Acceptance
Neurodivergence can be tough to manage. We are so used to so much criticism & shame that many of us don’t know what it is like not to live behind a mask, just to cope.
In this pre-recorded, self-paced, bite-size video (less than 6 minutes), Casey Anley, educational psychologist at Connections in Mind, will walk you through:
- What your self-concept is, and how it develops
- Why the neurodivergent self-concept is so often directed by trauma
- Four techniques to learn how to connect with yourself, explore who you are & what you stand for, and how to come home to yourself.
The accompanying handout will guide you along this process – we recommend that you print the handout & scribble on it while you are watching the course. It’s yours to make your own!
This month’s toolkit helps to guide you to Mind your Mind with some Mindfulness!
Take our 2 week challenge to take some time out for yourself, learn what your body can share with you, and get some more headspace with our short reflection exercises.
Designed for the neurodivergent brain – new to mindfulness or a seasoned meditator – it has short, punchy reflection points to help guide your practice.
We recommend you take a look at our recent Mindfulness Masterclass, as well! Take a look over here!
