Description

ADD-NI was originally established in 1997 as a support network for children and young people and the families of those affected by AD/HD: Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder.  The organisation aims to:

  • Provide support and information and raise awareness of the disorder across the Province
  • Work in partnership with children, young people and adults affected by AD/HD and their families and other agencies
  • Through support, early intervention and preventative programmes, the organisation aims to build on each child / young person’s individual strengths, enabling them to reach their full potential.

Carers attending this session will learn more about ADHD from the young person’s perspective and discuss ways to managing behaviour and enabling their young people to make the most of their potential.

It will be an informal session, where carers will be encouraged to ask questions and share experiences and advice with one another.
