Parents and Carers of Children and Young People with ADHD
Do you care for a child with ADHD or maybe you are going through the process of diagnosis, or suspect your child might be showing symptoms of ADHD? We have set up a new informal parent and carer only group, where we can discuss ideas, ask each other’s advice and to simply know that we are not alone. Come along and join other parents and carers in the Plymouth area. Meetings are held at Goosewell Primary School starting at 9.30am – 11.00 am. Please meet in the main reception.]
