ABOUT US

At Kaboose, our aspiration is to make the online world safe for everyone’s children by creating a secure place for young people to have meaningful, safe social relationships.

As a parent of a child with Autism and a background in advocacy through my work as The Autism Coach, I’ve met too many young people struggling to find and make friends.  Seeing my own son suffer from feelings of loneliness and disconnectedness, I decided to set up a community that could safely facilitate the building of supportive tribes, and allow our kids to develop relationships that are meaningful for them.

Our purpose is to reduce loneliness by creating a sense of belonging, helping to improve mental health and promoting an overall connection to the community. 

We’re also aiming to offer employment opportunities to Young Autistic People, with positions opening in the future to help us build and manage the platform.
