Presenter, DJ, comedian, dad of twins, fundraiser and someone with ADHD – Ryan Swain is up for two Yorkshire Choice awards. “I wouldn’t be the performer I am today if I didn’t have ADHD,” says Ryan Swain.
“People often concentrate on the negative side of conditions like ADHD, but I wouldn’t be able to do everything I do, if I didn’t have and I learnt early on to accept who I am. There is a dark side to ADHD, and maybe for four or five days a year I get down and take myself off until I feel more positive.”
Friends of Autism/ADHD Ltd are delighted to once again be in a position to fund a number of Psychological Assessments for young people with possible ASD/ADD/ADHD. The Assessment will consist of an Educational Assessment by Ann Prosser, licensed, certified clinical psychologist.
Along with the Assessment, Friends of Autism/ADHD provide a confidential Advocacy Service for any parent who wishes to discuss the possible impact of the Assessment and how to move forward after a diagnosis.
Its the third Monday in January and we all now back in work, so you might want to read this! If you’re ready to climb the corporate ladder but feel like someone tore the steps to success out of your company handbook, don’t worry. Adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often encounter procrastination, communication, and organization problems both professionally and personally, but that doesn’t have to mean you’re perpetually doomed to entry-level work.
If you have a child or know someone with a child with ADHD doing the Leaving Certificate and looking to progress to 3rd level, well then the Dare Scheme (lower points requirements) and Hear Scheme (financial assistance) could well be for you. These workshops are a great way to find out more about these schemes and we would recommend that go along to get more info, if you are interested!
