Fabulinus have knowledge and experience with helping children and youth who feels that school does not fit.

-the misbehaving underachievers
-the anonymous who just try to fit in
-the high achieving talents
-those you just can't get your head around

Our services include: identification of learning potential with ability testing and assessment of traits and needs, consulting, coaching, training courses for teachers, special educators and health care professionals, speaks and work shops. We also assist parents in contact with the authorities, like kindergarden, school, school psychology services (PPT), childrens psychiatric services (BUP), Child welfare services (barnevernet), and local and central government.

Our clients are parents, youth, teachers, special educators, psychologists and miscellaneous professionals. Of more than 300 cases, the age range is from 2-37 years of age, but mostly students from 1-10th grade.

The board has four members with broad experience: Business, law, entrepreneurship, management, education, psychology, and school. But most importantly, we have felt how it is to be a student in a school that is not catering for our needs.

None of the board members are paid, and they work pro-bono.
