MINI CASE DISCUSSIONS
Ross has the experience of over 25 years working with A-typical children in a range of mainstream mental health, community, and private practice settings.
These days Ross consults solely to Mockingbird. He offers reality tested approaches and strategies supporting the wellbeing and quality of life of children and families.
“Wow, if you're thinking about doing this workshop do it! Well worth it, Ross was amazing! It was such a pleasure to hear him talk and would do so again in a heartbeat. Ross totally understands and gets our children. It blew us away, we came away with so many ideas and tools to help us going forward and feeling like finally someone gets it and understands!
Look forward to seeing him again in the future.
Very grateful, thank you Ross."

"This was a brilliant workshop. My husband and I gained so much from it. It was nice to learn with and connect with other parents with neurodiverse children. The workshop was insightful, relevant, and well facilitated. I would highly recommend."

“I found the Mockingbird workshop with Ross Baker absolutely invaluable. I enjoyed Ross’ style of delivery and he kept me engaged the entire day. Ross’ expertise in working with children on the spectrum was evident but he was also very practical and realistic in his advice. It was reassuring to connect with other parents dealing with similar issues, and I felt the environment was extremely welcoming and non-judgemental. I would jump at the opportunity to attend another Mockingbird workshop, and would recommend Ross and the team unreservedly.”

"Ross Barker's workshop was a fun and informative 'injection of hope'.
A lovely day in a welcoming relaxed atmosphere. It provided an inclusive and accepting place for the neurodiverse child. For me, such a relief and comfort to know there is a way ahead. And we are just one part of the normal spectrum!
Makes me sad for all the heart-rending cases that have never had this acceptance or support.
Ross is a great speaker, and you can take away as little, or as much complexity as you like!
Mockingbird philosophy should be available everywhere. Hope it becomes part of the norm.
Thank you so much, ... thank goodness we found you!"

"I first saw Ross Barker when my children were in Primary School and so I was pleased to once again attend his workshop.
I once again learnt so much and also got to thank Ross for the helpful information that helped me better to interact and understand my children now young adults.
One of the key things taken from the workshop was the work around Trauma, understanding that all the little Traumas add up to big Traumas and what our children's survival styles are.
My family is doing well, they all have great self awareness and self acceptance. Free to be who they are and not what society was trying to make them be."

"I dragged my husband along to Ross Barkers event kicking and screaming about going to another thing. Within 30 mins he had wrote on the back of his paper “ok… he’s really good”. Refreshing, relevant and reviving!"
