New podcast: Unschooling and our neurodivergent children

My guest this episode is Naomi Fisher. Naomi is a clinical psychologist and mother of two. Her children were unschooled for six years and now attend a self-directed learning centre. Naomi has just published a wonderful book about self-directed learning, entitled Changing our Minds, which explores the theory and research behind autonomous learning, alongside lots of real-life examples. In this episode, we talk about why autonomy is so important to learning, why school can be particularly tough for our neurodivergent children, and how these children can truly thrive in an unschooling environment.

You can download the episode here. Hope you enjoy the conversation!
