Spark for Life psychology offers a range of neuroaffirming social groups. These groups are safe and supportive spaces where individuals of diverse neurological backgrounds can come together. Our groups are facilitated by trained clinicians who have a deep understanding of neurodiversity and aim to create an inclusive environment that celebrates individual differences. Through a range of activities and discussions, participants are encouraged to express themselves authentically, fostering empathy, understanding, and connection among the members. These groups offer a valuable opportunity for individuals to learn more about themselves, build social skills, enhance their self-confidence, and find a sense of belonging in a community that embraces and respects their unique neurotypes.
