Below are a few quotes from parent/carers who have completed the “Monster Inside” parent/child training programme.

“I feel more in control”
“I understand my sons feelings now”
“I am happier and my family is more calmer and we feel like a family unit now”
“I will be even stronger in six months time”
“Keeping to the rules and following things through, I have learnt to talk less, think about what I say and I listen to my son”

The parent/carers workshops will explore the issues related to living with a child with ADHD, taking back control, family values and problem solving.

The children’s workshops will follow the same themes as the adult but will be child focused and will include: social skills, making informed choices, peer relationships, social media and understanding and learning to manage their ADHD “Monster”.

To achieve the best results you and your child/children must attend all the workshops.

Booking packs will be posted Week commencing 14th August.
The deadline for booking places is 12pm Friday 8th September with confirmations being sent week commencing Monday 11th September 2017.
