Parenting your Child with ADHD/ADD

The Brandon Centre offers parenting programmes for parents and carers of children and young people aged 5-12 years with a clinical diagnosis of ADHD/ADD.  

The programme has been written and devised in line with NICE guidelines on the treatment for children with ADHD and incorporates the 123 Magic™ approach. We are licensed by ADDISS, the National Attention Deficit Disorder Information and Support Service, and trained by Dr Tom Phelan, the founder of 123 Magic™ to run this part of the course.

The course will start on 12th January 2017
