Gap Years for Neurodivergent Youth

Are you a neurodivergent student, or a parent/guardian of a neurodivergent young adult, who is uncertain about how to approach the post-secondary journey?

CanGap is launching a series of tools, workshops, and programs connecting neurodivergent gappers to like-minded youth and coaches, and support designed to suit your unique needs.

support from Canada's leading gap year expert.

Recognizing that students were not being provided with enough opportunity to get hands-on experience to develop life skills, Michelle left the classroom to explore other ways of helping young people find direction and fulfilment. She worked to train other teachers, she instructed outdoor education, she traveled for pleasure and for work and researched what today’s youth really want and need.  


All of her life experience drove her to the same conclusion – we need to slow down and give young people the space and time to figure out who they are and to engage in meaningful experiences. 


Michelle founded the Canadian Gap Year Association as an antidote to business, mental health challenges and young adults feeling confused and unfulfilled.  She has committed her professional life to giving families permission to slow down so their kids can be the best version of themselves and make a healthy transition into adulthood.
