Raising an ADHDer workshop

Celebrate Me. 
Understand Me.
Support Me.

The neurodiversity ​affirming paradigm offers that every brain type has its evolutionary purpose. ADHD, being a brain type, impacts the way we process the world, our drivers, how we do things, how we make decisions, and the energy we put into this world. Come learn from a psychologist with lived experience of ADHD and understand ADHD from a historical perspective, and its true neurotype and strategies for unlocking its strengths as well as supporting its challenges.

Raising an ADHD'er helps you understand your ADHD'er beyond their hyperactivity and inattention to exploring their neurotype.

We carry two options to help suit you the way that you like to learn best. 

Option 1: A self-paced, online course. 


 

This option is ideal if you would like to access information in your own time, if you are unable to make live deliveries. The course is designed to be bite-sized, with videos ranging from 5 to 15 minutes long on each topic, to suit an ADHDer's attention span.

If this sounds like you? Sign up here! 
This option is ideal if you would like the accountability of having set times to sit down and access information, and would appreciate the opportunity to ask questions and interact with others in the course. 

The last course block ran in March 2022. If you'd like to register your interest for our next live running of the workshop, do email us here.

Option 2: Live delivery via Zoom
