Research Opportunity

It has become clear to me helping families over the years that there is a strong link between School Phobia, School Refusal and Separation Anxiety and other disorders and disabilities. 


I feel quite strong that this is an area open for research.  Much of the research I have read discusses School Phobia and Refusal in depth but have never explored the ~link ~ towards other diagnosed or un-diagnosed conditions. These conditions include:


  • Autistic Spectrum Condition
  • Aspergers
  • ADHD
  • Sensory Disorder
  • Tourettes Syndrome
  • Specific Learning Disabilities
  • Auditory Memory Disorder
  • and more

I feel strongly that this needs to be explored as  Parents are continuing to be pressured over their child who to the school appears to be


  • 'unco-operative',
  • 'truanting',


and the parents accused of

  • 'soft style parenting',
  • 'not trying hard enough',
  • 'Preventing their child from an education'.

Researching this area may help to eradicate the accusatory and blame behaviours and focus on a way forward for families.
