Our Story

Lizzie Smith CEO & Founder.png

As a child, I was under the care of health professionals. I noticed the lack of resources to help explain medical situations to kids, leaving parents without adequate support. This may have been 20 years ago, however these same problems haven't been addressed.

This inspired me to create Gradatim.

In 2022, I completed my MSc in Psychology of Mental Health at the University of Edinburgh, where I combined my interests in developmental and health psychology with my professional and personal background.

With experience as an educator, health worker, and learning designer, I have witnessed the transformative power of educational tools. Gradatim is born from my passion for education and firsthand experiences.

Our goal is to provide accessible and innovative resources that foster healthier communication and wellbeing for children, parents, and healthcare professionals navigating complex health changes.

Lizzie Smith, CEO & Founder
