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?

#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.
What we’re aiming for thriving.
It’s not easy, but it’s possible. ... See MoreSee Less

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.
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. ... See MoreSee Less
