Stockport Parents of ADHD Children in Education (S.P.A.C.E.) is a parent support group for parents and carers of children and young people in the Stockport area with ADHD and associated conditions.
We provide information to parents and carers in a friendly open and informal environment where they can express their feelings and concerns with others that understand the challenges of raising a child with ADHD.
There is a lot of misinformation about the condition, which can be confusing, especially for those with a new diagnosis. We hold regular monthly meet ups in a local coffee shop and also have a growing online community. We signpost local services that are able to offer help and support to parents and regularly host presentations from professionals or organisations who are of interest to our parents.
Here at SPACE we recognise that the more we understand about the condition, the easier it is for us to help and support our children, particularly as they move through the education system. We are working to abolish the myths and stigma, which are commonly associated with the condition and support the movement for a national ADHD strategy.
