ADHD / ADD

ADHD is the most common neurobehavioural disorder of childhood.

ADHD affects about 3 – 5% of school-aged children. ADHD is diagnosed much more often in boys than in girls. In adults, the hyperactivity and impulsivity may be less apparent. For many individuals, these difficulties in childhood continue in adult life.
ADHD symptoms include:

  • Difficulty staying focused and on task, distractibility.
  • High activity levels, or, especially with adults, a feeling of restlessness
  • Impulsivity, or acting without thinking about the consequences
  • Deficits in organisation, planning, and in regulating emotions.

Parenting a child with ADHD

It’s not easy to raise a child with ADHD. They act before they think. They don’t listen. They have trouble following rules. They over-react, are unorganized, and out of control. Even though you understand this, there may be times when you find yourself frustrated, angry, then guilty. Often parents disagree on how to handle the challenges associated with raising a child with ADHD. Many parents feel isolated and alone.

Since my daughter started treatment at The Brain Collective a year ago I have noticed a huge improvement in her mental wellbeing. She was diagnosed with ADHD together with learning difficulties late in her school life and has never been given the help and support she deserved.
Brain Collectives turned this around for her and she is now doing well at college and achieving milestones we never expected to see.

On a personal note both Maria and Melanie have given a professional service and have been there when needed . Nothing is too much trouble and they have become family friends who I would not hesitate to recommend.
