4 information and awareness sessions for parents of children aged 3 – 7 years old that have behaviours consistent with ADHD are to be held in the Colin area of Belfast.
The sessions have been organised by Colin Neighbourhood Partnership's Changing Lives Initiative. The Changing Lives Initiative is aimed at families of children aged 3 to 7 years. Parents and family members are welcome to come along to this information & awareness session where you can learn about ADHD, what it is and isn’t, and what behaviours are consistent with ADHD.
Tips and strategies to manage the challenges of living with a child experiencing behaviours consistent with ADHD will be provided. Parents who feel their child may be experiencing behaviour consistent with ADHD can go forward to our screening programme. This will involve parents filling out some standardised questionnaires about their child.
The information sessions will take place on:
Tuesday 5th June at 9.30am and 6.30pm, in the School Hall of Holy Evangelist Primary School, Twinbrook.
Thursday 28th June at 9.15am and 6.30pm, in Lagmore Community Forum, Lagmore Drive, Belfast.
No booking required, simply come along.
The Initiative is supported by an award of €2.7m by the European Union’s INTERREG VA Programme, a programme managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB) and is focused on County Louth, West Belfast and the Argyll & Bute region in Scotland. The initiative is being delivered locally by Colin Neighbourhood Partnership.
