Help for ADHD

Many children on the Autistic Spectrum (some estimates suggest around 40%) also have features of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) or ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder).  For these children, and also those children with a primary diagnosis of ADHD/ADD who do not have features of ASD, we work in close conjunction with a Consultant Paediatrician who can advise parents about appropriate and often helpful medication.  

For those parents who either do not wish to consider medication, or who feel that their child might benefit from a psychologically based behaviour management approach, we can help to put together an individualised behaviour plan.

We also have a member of our team, who has experience in sensory integration difficulties, and who can advise on strategies for use in the classroom and home which may help a child to concentrate and focus more effectively.

We are also aware that children with ADHD (particularly those who also have Autism/Asperger’s Syndrome) can present major challenges within any family.

We can offer on-going support and advice for families, schools and siblings.
