Jannine Harris MA PGCE is a teacher, trainer, parent, academic and consultant specialising in ADHD.
Jannine was diagnosed with ADHD herself four years ago following the diagnosis of two of her three children. Jannine is brutally honest and open in her delivery of the theory and practice of ADHD. She uses her own life and professional experiences to talk you through what works and what doesn't - and she can tell you why you don't always get the outcomes you were expecting.
You can ask her questions along the way, and she'll answer in a raw, real and respectful way. Jannine will talk about why things go wrong and how they can be turned around. She isn't idealistic and doesn't make any false promises. ADHD is hard to live with!
Jannine is an example what thriving with ADHD can look like. Her 25-year-old daughter, who has Asperger's and ADHD, is her sidekick. The two of them will leave you in no doubt of what is possible and how you might achieve this for yourself, your child, spouse, or the people you support. Jannine has featured in articles in The Guardian, Society for Education and Training (SET) and ADHD Action. She will be speaking at the upcoming national conference run by the ADHD Foundation on the social and economic impact of ADHD . She is an MSc Psychology student with the University of Liverpool; a member of the Association of Child and Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH); Society for Education and Training (SET) and holds a student membership of the British Psychology Association (BPS). She runs the Facebook page @ADHDWiseUK which has over 13,000 followers
