ADHD Richmond is demanding that the local children’s services – Achieving for Children – amend their, due to be published,  SEND Threshold criteria to include ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)

Given this neuro-developmental disorder affects approximately two children in every classroom, the Support Group is bemused that the condition has been omitted from the SEND Threshold document.

Please help us to rectify this, before November,  by adding “ADHD” in Box 6 of this very short survey

You may also wish to write to your local Councillor and MP. Use this link to find them: https://www.writetothem.com/write

A Richmond Clinical Commissioning Group survey asks if parents and carers want skills to support their children in the wake of cuts to CAMHS services 

In Richmond (and Kingston) the CCG’s are rethinking how to make best use of available funding. With resources getting scarcer, they believe it could be worth providing parents and carers will more skills to help them support themselves, their child or their young person.  Is this what you want? Or do you think CAMHS should be offering a full and proper service?

Let the CCG know by completing this very short survey Deadline is Oct 28

Oct 23:  ADHD Richmond and CAMHS invite girls (over 15yrs) to come at 10am –  2pm at Richmond Royal Hospital where we are putting together some short ‘video chats’ between girls diagnosed late with ADHD

The aim is to add a few of these 2 min video chats into our presentation that the girls are making for schools.

Their aim is to explain to #schools how it felt having undiagnosed ADHD and things #teachers might have done which would have helped.
If you have teenage daughter who might be interested, and is available, do let us know. It’s a great project! Email Val at info@adhdrichmond.org
