Here at the The Diverse Minds Academy we aim to support and empower neurodivergent children, teens, and their families by welcoming and celebrating different brains and unique thinkers. We provide a suite of neuro affirmative services through assessment, education, and support to support the discovery of a universe of potential with new tools to thrive in daily life.
Our clinical services provide professional assessments and intervention in both paediatric occupational therapy and clinical child psychology.
Our inclusive afterschool program runs all year round with pick up from local schools or drop in available.
We are in the final stages of opening a preschool morning and afterschool service via the ECCE scheme and hope to have that operational by October 2023. In addition we are planning an autism preschool once our TUSLA registration is approved for preschool.
Visit us on Saturday, December 16th 2023 for a Free Open Day.
Child psychology can use several different types of therapy techniques based on your child’s age and unique situation. Depending on the age and needs of your child, child psychologists may work solely with you (or guardians) to help with parenting skills or how to best address your child’s behaviours.
Our clinical child psychologist is available to assess for autism and ADHD along with providing an array of therapeutic services.
The purpose of Occupational Therapy is to help a child achieve their maximum potential at school, home and in play/social activities.
We provide private assessments in addition to supplying assessments for the HSE as part of the Assessment of Needs service.
We offer a range of support sessions for children, such as: therapy for dyspraxia, autism, sensory processing difficulties, intellectual disability, Down’s Syndrome and a range of learning difficulties.
We are delighted to announce we are in the late stages of opening a preschool service for children for children 2 years 8 months of age. This we hope will be open in October 2023 and we are taking expressions of interest now.
The preschool will be inclusive and open from 8:30 until 1:00 with an afterschool available until 6pm. We will operate as part of the ECCE scheme.
With over twelve years of providing holistic care to families, our Youth Club is an after-school, Tusla-registered program with a difference.
