She has worked in the Spryfield community for almost 10 years and has lived in the area for almost 25 years. She believes that living with and/or raising a child(ren) with ADHD has many challenges.

Having a child with ADHD is not significantly different than having a child with ex. Diabetes. One must learn special skills to look after either one. Both types of children are prescious and special and both need special care and understanding of their respective disorders. The Diabetes Association helps parents of children with Diabetes, we help parents of children with ADHD.
Join us to learn more from each other, seminars, videos and invited specialists.
We now know that children with ADHD can have successful lives providing they get the correct support and encouragment.
