We know what it is like
The motivation for starting this business came from a chance meeting between two adults with ADHD and a shared sense of failure and underachievement, whose experience of supporting ADHD students at school and at home led to a drive to make things better. We saw that the education system struggled to cope with students with ADHD and at times had little or no idea what to do or how to go about it.
ADHD is usually overlooked or not recognised
We realised that too many of our students struggled to achieve in our exam-focussed and target driven educational environment. For them, the neuro typical world is perplexing and confusing. Yet when we looked at available resources there were none. Medication can help but it has its limitations. ADHD seemed to follow a medical model – a diagnosis, sometimes medication and then……. nothing. Yet the ADHD persists and the impact on many of our clients can cause lifelong damage.
