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.

Activities, ADHD, Children, Families, Young People, Youth Club

CPMP Youth Club

In my previous blog entry I mentioned that the committee had been out and about last week.

Well I can finally tell you all… we were out looking for a venue for a new service we are organising. We found one that is perfect.

I can now announce that we will be trialing a Youth Club for children and young people with ADHD.

The venue will be the Park Farm Centre Carr Mill (click here for map).

The first session will be Friday 8th February 6.30-8.30pm.

The club is part of our membership so therefore is free to our members children and young people with ADHD and their siblings.

The session will have a small cost of £2.50 for non members but please be aware we will require proof of diagnosis or being on pathway.

Parents and carers will be required to stay on site (tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided).

We are planning various activities for the group and Clair is very excited about planning a tuck shop!

ADHD, Education, Parents and Carers

ADHD workshop

Today a number of the group attended the ‘Learning more about ADHD: Practical Support workshop’ at Westmorland School with the Witherslack Group and the ADHD Foundation.

We recommend all parents and carers to attend one of these workshops if they can. Every workshop we have been on we’ve learned more, picked up more hints and tips and met so many lovely people.
