1:1 #coaching all morning, leading a case conference at a school in Rugby this afternoon and then hosting our ADHD Wise Peterborough support group this evening with the help of my daughter Becca and the lovely Jacki Cairns.
Tired but happy. Feeling like mine is an ideal job in many ways for an #ADHD er. Varied and purposeful.
Tomorrow is easier so I get to recover as Monday was bonkers too!
One of my young #ADHD#ASD clients missed out on going on a school trip to KidZania London and has never gotten over it as it seemed very unjust to him. It seems to me that he will feel better if he gets a chance to go so I have been looking into it.
As you can image, J wants to go with other children, so I’m writing to ask if any of you would be interested in joining us? I'm thinking a weekday in the school holidays, early 2020.
J is in Year 5 but the age range is 4-14. The more people we get the cheaper we can make it.
Can we do a #Neurodiverse day out? Would your child benefit from meeting others like themselves?
It's been 7 years since we discovered #ADHD is part of our family dynamic. 7 years since Kiki first tried meds. She was 19 then and was already diagnosed with Asperger’s. I flipped and didn't believe it at first. But the meds helped so much that it was undeniable. Will was diagnosed soon, after and then I followed. Becca took a while longer but is also diagnosed.
Knowledge is power. Meds are not a cure all. Life got better almost immediately after each diagnosis because with it comes with an understanding and a framework for adjustments.
Each of us is living out best life. It's not easy, but together, we have got this. 🥰
