This group is a safe, supportive, and confidential environment for people living with a child diagnosed with ADHD.

Collaborating with my child’s school

This month we are pleased to announce guest speaker Sarah Andrews, ADHD Coach and Consultant on Collaborating with my child’s school.

What is a support group?

A support group is a group of people who meet to give and gain support from others with similar needs. For many, a support group reduces the feeling of isolation and creates an opportunity for discussion. By sharing ideas and information with others, many people are able to find new ways of coping. Most people who attend feel that the emotional support they both give and receive is of great benefit.

ADHD WA Support Groups are for members only. This is to ensure fairness to those who have purchased a membership and is a show of our commitment to our members.

If you would like to attend the support group and are not yet a member, you can become an ADHD WA member here.
