Welcome to the Caspari Foundation
We believe that all children who need help with development and learning should have access to affordable and appropriate support for their needs. We work towards this aim by supporting children with emotional, learning and behavioural difficulties to succeed in school.
Children, young people & families
Sometimes, through no fault of their own, children and young people can find their emotions get in the way of developing and learning. Caspari Foundation is a charity that helps children, young people and families to learn to cope with and overcome these barriers.Help for children, young people & families

Caspari Saturday Lecture
Over 80 people gathered on Saturday 04 March to hear a fascinating lecture from Dr. Graham Music on the impact of early childhood adversity on children's behaviour and ability to learn. Illustrating his talk with examples from clinical work, Graham Music linked theoretical models with real life clinical and classroom experiences. The talk was much appreciated.
