Pre- and Post-Assessment Workshops – ADHD

A series of three linked pre- and post-assessment workshops for parent/carers of children and young people who are waiting for an assessment for ADHD, or who have recently been diagnosed with ADHD.

These workshops are open to all parents/carers who live in Berkshire or whose child attends a Berkshire school, who:

  • Have a child who is on the waiting list to be assessed for ADHD or
  • Have a child who has just been diagnosed as having ADHD and
  • Have NOT previously attended a Time Out from ADHD course with Parenting Special Children (PSC)

Parents/carers must attend the Introduction to ADHD workshop first, and it is recommended that parents attend all workshops in the series.

Topics covered include:

Introduction to ADHD

  • What is ADHD?
  • Challenges & concerns
  • Strengths and opportunities
  • Signposting to support

Anxiety and ADHD

  • What is anxiety?
  • What is the relationship between ADHD and anxiety
  • Coping strategies for children/young people and parents/carers

Managing ADHD Behaviours

  • Attention Deficit Behaviours
  • Hyperactive Behaviours
  • Impulsive Behaviours
  • Behaviour Management Strategies

We also run a Sensory Processing Workshop and a Dual Diagnosis Workshop which might be of interest.


This service was commissioned by the CCGs, part of the NHS.


Please note: These workshops are only suitable for Parents/Carers. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide childcare, or accommodate children.
