Action Attainment

We are a social enterprise for neurodiverse children and young people, and everyone who works alongside them. We work with families, schools and sports organisations to provide practical inclusion strategies that can be used in all areas of life.

Why does action matter?

Neurodiverse children deserve active, fun and fulfilling lives.

But too often, young people are let down by systems that don’t understand them or meet their needs. And over time, this can lead to school exclusion, anxiety and isolation.

As a community of parents, education experts, and neurodiverse people, we aim to share knowledge and strategies to build a fairer world for all children. We believe in taking action early and attaining positive outcomes.

Our Services

Our services are safe spaces for people to show up, be themselves and have fun, while learning communication skills for life.

From Saturday morning football groups, to parent workshops and school INSET, our sessions and training have been developed by people with lived experience and neurodiversity experts.

We support diagnosed and undiagnosed young people, including those who have autism, ADHD, dyspraxia, dyslexia, social communication or sensory processing differences.

Find out about our services for parents, young people and teaching professionals.

Our Community & Partners

Having fun, sharing knowledge, and building resilient communities is at the heart of everything we do. We work with organisations including sports clubs and activity groups, schools, and education professionals to provide our services.
