HADD-ADHD Ireland Ireland’s support organisation for people with ADHD, is delighted to let you know that leading UK expert Colin Foley is delivering for us a unique and essential training seminar for those who are involved with Children in an educational setting.
UCD Brain Baby Labs are looking for parents of children from 10 months up to 6 years of age to get involved in their new baby lab study. They are looking for families with and without a history of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This means that they want both children who have an older sibling and/or parent with an ADHD diagnosis as well as families with no known history of ADHD.

Countless small acts of bias happen to people with ADHD all day long at work. If you let it get to you, it can feel like death by a thousand papercuts. I often say that it’s not ADHD that’s my biggest problem, it’s that people don’t understand ADHD. If you have ADHD, you’re probably a sensitive person. Pick your battles.
There are 12 genetic risk factors for ADHD, a new study has found.
For the first time, researchers at the University of Cardiff have discovered there are common genetic tendencies linked to the disorder found in around one in 20 children.
The genetic information of around 55,000 people was analysed to identify differences between people with and without the condition. The team also found these same genetic factors are shared with other psychiatric and physical disorders, including depression, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.
