Teens with ADHD.

Currently planning a webinar for #ADHD teenagers and their families.
We have two 17 year olds who despite their challenges, are doing well (both A-level students). They will be presenting this with us - because teens need to hear from other teens!

What topics or questions would you or your child like us to cover?

*edit if you can, please ask your teen what they would like us to cover.

#ADHD #Coaching varies enormously.
Here is a snippet of a between sessions catch up with one of adult clients.

Very relatable wouldn’t you say?
But then they went on to have a very productive day.

It is so hard to get out in front and then stay there. Left unchecked, people with ADHD can spend their lives trying to put out fires or running away from their own chaos.

That’s surviving.
What we’re aiming for thriving.
It’s not easy, but it’s possible.

Dear school SENDCo.

Although my daughter is no longer at your school and is now studying for her A-levels at home, I wonder if I could trouble you to answer the following questions.

How was it that her work pace was never flagged as a concern?
Why was the fact that her hands hurt through hyper-mobility never brought to my attention?
Is there a reason why her time blindness went unnoticed and unsupported?
Can it really be that no one noticed how distracted she is or how hard she finds it to organise herself?

I look forward to you response.

Best wishes
Mum to a bright child with ADHD.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Oh wait. I forgot.

😬I’m pathologising my child.
😬We shouldn’t go looking for ADHD any more than we should go looking for cancer.
😬Her difficulties are all just down to her periods.
😬She can’t have ADHD because she has never bitten anyone.
😬You understand ADHD better than I do as you have a family member with it.
😬She doesn’t need any support because she’s bright.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hate that you’re still in post but I’m glad my daughter is nowhere near you.

^^^edit. I am a SEND Specialist Teacher as well as a mum to 3 neurodiverse children. I’m a teacher trainer too. As such, I know many SENDCos / SENCos who are amazing. It’s just my daughter was not fortunate to have one of them.

Promoting positive outcomes

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
