Resources and Support

Knowing how to best help their family member who has been diagnosed with ADHD can be an extremely stressful time for family and whānau. We are an organisation that people can turn to for information, strategies and support. With knowledge we empower our community to develop their resilience, and to encourage them to search for resources and support for their particular journey. To achieve this we: * encourage people to contact our organisation for information on who best to assist them on their ADHD journey. * maintain our website which is filled with articles and information about ADHD, including our Healthcare Directory. * maintain our private Facebook pages: "Parents of Children with ADHD", "Adults with ADHD", and "Partners of Adults with ADHD", which are a useful place to find a supportive online community. * constantly investigate new ADHD scientific research, and information, that we can pass on to our ADHD community. * maintain extensive "E-Information Packs" (one for Families and the other for Adults), which empowers people, and their families, with strategies to help with their ADHD journey. * hold workshops such as our "Online Every Day with ADHD Parenting course", which gives parents tools to help their children, and family, within their ADHD diagnosis.
