Fear mechanisms in neurodiversity: and how to help

Discover answers for yourself or a loved one

Fear is an important survival mechanism. But when misdirected, it can paralyse a person, locking them into a cycle of limitation and recurring misfortune.


Autism, ADHD and dyslexia frequently come with heightened fear mechanisms. Typically, there is a combination of factors at work, rooted in an interplay between the way the individual naturally thinks and learns, the environment surrounding the individual, and previous life experiences.


This webinar examines how neurodivergent individuals can be liberated from paralysing fear and anxiety mechanisms.
