SPACE Stockport is a support group for parents and carers of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and associated conditions. We are a registered children's charity and there is no charge to attend our meetings or any of our guest presentations.
We are a group of parents from Stockport who all have children with ADHD and meet on a monthly basis at local coffee shop Funky Monkey Coffee Company in Davenport, Stockport. The meetings are an opportunity to talk to other parents who face the same challenges in a relaxed and informal way.
The more we understand the condition, the easier it is for us to help and support our children. Knowing the facts is also helpful when dealing with other people who have regular contact with our children such as relatives and teachers. Without an accurate understanding of what ADHD is, it can be difficult for them to understand why our children behave the way they do.
There is a lot of misinformation about ADHD which can be confusing, especially for those with a recent diagnosis. Here at SPACE we seek to find out accurate information and share it with other parents. We have established links with a number of local organisations that offer useful services such as Parent Partnership and the Stockport SEND Information, Advice and Support Services.
We have our own Twitter account @SPACEstockport, which we use to share relevant information from other Twitter users and remind people of forthcoming meetings.
