ADHD

Date for you Diary

St Helens Carers are hosting their 4th SEND Information Day on Thursday 14th March 10.30-14.00 @ the Town Hall.

Clair’s Parents Meeting Parents ADHD will be there so if you are worried about coming to a meeting or just want to ask a question, come down and meet us.

There is no need to book, just come along.

There will be a wide range of local authority services, health services and community and voluntary services.

I’ll attach a leaflet as soon as I get one.

ADHD, Awareness

Clair was on the radio

Clair was on BBC Radio Stoke last night talking about the effects of ADHD, on the Stuart Georges’s Show… where they were discussing whether ADHD is real, after Peter Hitchens wrote in the Mail on Sunday (27/1/19] about his doubts over the conditions existence.

Having read what Peter Hitchens wrote, I have to say it’s so disheartening that so many people still feel able to write so negatively about ADHD without doing the slightest bit of research. They have no knowledge and no personal experience but feel they can very publicly deny it’s existence.

We would have let you all know sooner about Clair’s radio debut but the radio but the station only contacted Clair half an hour before they wanted her to talk. She did brilliantly and we’re really proud of her.

January catch up – Happy Burns Day

It’s almost the end of January already!

We’ve had our two January meetings. It was lovely to see everyone after the holidays. There’s been a collective sigh of relief to get our young people back into their normal routines. Some of us had a really tough time, our ADHDer’s really struggle when out of routine.

It was so nice to get to know our new members better and for everyone to have a really good catch up and off load all the built up pressure of the last month. It’s a good reminder that we’re not alone dealing with children struggling with the world around them.

Our next Meetings will be

7th February 12.30 – 2.30pm

27th February 6.00 – 8.00pm

@ the Millennium Centre

We hope to have some dates for your diary by then as we finalise some dates for speakers and training.

Today is Burns Day so here’s a quote from the Bard about not judging others before we look at ourselves.
