From Exhausted
to Empowered


Hi there!

I’m so excited for this offer. Let me tell you a bit about my passion for the ND Collective. I created this community to provide you with the tools, insight and support that you need to gracefully raise your neurodivergent kids.

At my private practice in New York, I’ve helped hundreds of families leverage their children’s strengths instead of focusing on deficits. The results are incredible! When families first come through the doors of my practice, they are filled with uncertainty and desperate for change. They are experiencing their bright, vibrant kids grappling with behaviors that leave them both feeling frustrated and disconnected. 

Ultimately, the pain comes from not knowing, and while families are working incredibly hard to manage daily stressors and navigate the complexities of neurodiversity, the challenges keep coming. With relationships on the brink, parents long for an emotional bond that instills understanding and trust. Let me assure you that this expertly crafted community will give you the empowerment and confidence you’ve been looking for.

You will feel empowered by knowing exactly what works.
You will feel empowered by having access to research-backed tools.
You will feel empowered by a community that brings ND individuals together.

And, you will feel empowered because you’ll be equipped as your child’s strongest advocate.

With love,

Polina Shkadron


Have you been grappling with fear and uncertainty about your child's future, worried they won’t achieve happiness, independence, or success? 

You’re not alone.

Facing the Realities:
The Struggles of Raising Neurodivergent Children

Many parents and guardians face these daunting challenges daily, often compounded by outdated, neurotypical-oriented approaches that fail to recognize the unique strengths of ND children.

What if there was a more effective, empathetic way to raise your neurodivergent child? What if, by making small shifts to how you show up, you can completely alter the way your child responds? You can have a sense of capability and assurance, contributing to a more compelling presence that meets your child exactly where they are.”

Do you find yourself searching endlessly for ways to make those outbursts stop and realizing that ignoring is harming your relationship?

Are you struggling with the overwhelming challenge of raising a neurodivergent child, feeling lost amidst conflicting advice and strategies that just don’t work?

Lucy Han

"I want to give a shout out to Polina Shkadron. My son is almost 4 with high functioning ASD or just social emotional delay... I [don't] care so much about labels. We started Aiden with Polina back in February 2023 and continued through summer with her social group. He went from a loner to craving for friendship."

Phil & Jen

"Polina works with us on behavior management, impulse control, executive functioning… just to name a few things. In addition to working directly with our sons, we also do parent sessions as often as possible. She has helped us through so many challenges. Her insights are invaluable, and she is always spot on!"

Colleen, parent of ND twins

"Polina has helped Rosie with frustration tolerance, problem solving, sensory issues and coping skills. It is also incredibly helpful that Polina allows you to join her sessions... not only do you get to talk about what went on, you get to see it unfold, which helps tremendously. We are very fortunate!"

"Polina was a godsend for my family. My 2-year-old was an extremely picky eater, and it was really stressing us out. Polina effectively eliminated the negativity that we all came to associate with mealtime. My daughter started trying everything from Brussels sprouts to cauliflower. Polina is very knowledgeable in her field."

D.P., parent of an ADHD child

"Polina is a wonderful and warm therapist with a unique approach to children’s therapy via play. Polina has helped with language and behavior and has provided us with tools to make sure our child is successful in all settings. She has an amazing understanding of child development."

Leslie, parent of a newly
confident eater

"My son struggled with feeding for many months before we found Polina. [Her] approach changed his whole attitude toward food. And she taught me how to replicate her approach at home, carefully explaining how she did things and why they worked. He is now a greedy eater. We are so grateful!"
