ODODO works with parents of children with special needs.  

 Having worked in both mainstream and special-school settings, Catherine, the founder, saw a lack of resources to specifically help the parents of children with special needs.

Working with parents in a coaching capacity, Catherine saw how once the parents felt empowered and knowledgeable on the area, they felt happier in themselves.  This had a knock-on effect for the parents she worked with.

As her coaching sessions developed, she wanted to be able to reach more parents, and this was when ODODO was conceived.  

Online courses are offered to help develop assertiveness, confidence and ease navigating the special educational needs path.

 In July 2019, ODODO ran a course for primary school teachers on how to communicate with compassion.  The feedback from this course was positive and there are plans to expand training to more teachers.
