Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder -ADHD
ADHD Wise UK has been set up by adults who are diagnosed with ADHD themselves and use it to good effect. We want to champion the possibilities, and ‘promote positive outcomes’ for those with ADHD. It’s a tough condition to live with because we don’t behave the way society expects us to.
Have ADHD? Know someone with ADHD? Want to learn more? You’re in the right place! We post videos with tips, tricks and insights into the ADHD brain. This channel is my ADHD toolbox — a place to keep all the strategies I’ve learned about having and living with ADHD. It’s also grown into an amazing community of brains (and hearts!) who support and help each other. Anyone looking to learn more about ADHD is welcome here!
Autism Spectrum Condition/ Disorder- ASC/ ASD
Autism presents many challenges, but it isn't the end of the world.
Here at the Gina Davies Autism Centre, our role is to provide services to families, carers and professionals who are dealing with the challenges of autism among children. Our aim is to help you and your child flourish through practical methods and strategies that have been developed over many years by acclaimed autism expert, Gina Davies.
We are the proud parents of a daughter who is on the spectrum with a rare medical condition. By working closely with her school and therapist plus drawing on Sandra's knowledge in Autism, we quickly put visuals in place for her as we know most autistic children and adults are visual learners. Once these had been put in place her communication, social skills and behaviour improved. This helped lower her anxieties and frustration as she was non verbal until she was nearly 9.
