ADHD COACHING FOR ADULTS
Adult ADHD is more common than you think.

SUPPORT FOR FAMILIES
Families living with ADHD
Sometimes struggle to balance the needs (and challenges) of children and parents with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder with those of neurotypical siblings, parents, grandparents, and other relatives who may not understand ADHD symptoms.
We provide support to parents navigating the diagnoses, making decisions about treatment, advocating with the school system and finding parenting techniques that work for the family (using evidence based strategies).
We also provide counselling for children who are struggling with ADHD symptoms.
