For parents and carers of children and young people with A.D.H.D.
SPACE Stockport is a support group for parents and carers of children and young people in the Stockport area with ADHD and associated conditions.
Here at SPACE we provide information, advice and support for parents and carers in a friendly open environment where they can express their feelings with others who understand.
October was ADHD Awareness Month and an opportunity for ADHD professionals and support groups like ourselves to share the facts about Attention Deficit Hyper Activity Disorder. Throughout October we bashed some of the most common myths about ADHD and raised funds for our group with a sponsored ZipWire so that we can do more to support local families.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a kinetic disorder, which is commonly characterised by inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity.
Creating the right environment is very important but children do not develop ADHD from watching too much television, poor parenting or eating junk food.
If you are a parent or carer of a child with ADHD and would like to be kept informed about future SPACE meetings, sign up for our mailing list.
