Great article in today's Irish Times Health Supplement on getting an ADHD Diagnosis as an adult!
As a mature student at UCC, John Doyle is all too aware of the challenges that face him, now that he has been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). But the Tralee-born first-year student, who also works as a theatre director in Cork, doesn’t see his condition as a disorder.
Our next webinar!
Barbara Luther, Director of Training at the ADD Coach Academy is doing another talk for us on this Thursday (25th) at 8.00pm. She didn't get through all her material in the earlier webinar on 'Identifying ADHD Strengths and Designing Environments for Success', so we're doing a Part 2 of that session!
If you are an adult looking to get more information on getting a diagnosis or on other supports that maybe available for you please call us on 01-874 8349 Monday - Friday 9.30am - 5.30pm (or leave a message and we will get back to you!). If you prefer please drop us an email to email@example.com

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.”
