‘ADHD – just a way of excusing the behaviour of naughty small boys’ talk, 7.30 Monday, 18 March at East Croydon United Reformed Church, Addiscombe Grove

EAst Croydon UNited Reformed Church

Garret Smyth, founder of the central London adult ADHD support group (now meeting three times a month) will be talking about ADHD, how it is diagnosed in children and adults, what it is often mistaken for (a lot of things), its comorbidities (such as dyslexia), ways of treating and managing it and his personal experience of being an adult (and child if he can cast his memory back that far) with ADHD.

We’ve mostly moved beyond the reflex responses of “they need more discipline” and “they need more time in the great outdoors”, but there are still a lot of misconceptions about ADHD (Attention Deficit & Hyperactivity Disorder) and who can have it. Male, female, child and adult – anyone can suffer this developmental disorder, so it can be inattention, distractibility and hyperactivity for all the family! The odds are that a percentage of you reading this have it without knowing.
