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, ASD, Clair’s Parents, Parents and Carers

Parents and Carers Christmas Night out

We had a great night out at the Autism Initiatives  Big Comedy Bingo evening last weekend. A good number of parents and carers joined us (including some Dad’s too).

It was good to let our hair down and have a good chat and laugh. We even remembered to join in the bingo. This is the second year we’ve been to the Comedy Bingo evening. It is a good night for a good cause (and a good buffet).
