One of her main aims has been to bring about change to mainstream services in line with latest legislation. Another of her successful campaigns has been the training and awareness of professionals working with children with ADHD (through increasing statutory provision). Val has developed and produced vital pre and post-diagnosis information to guide parents/carers and has also created regular parent training classes. Val has done an incredible job in putting ADHD at the forefront of Children’s Mental Health, raising awareness and understanding with the public and professionals alike.
