ADHD Smart - About Us

ADHD Smart is an independent consultancy based in Northamptonshire. My services offer information, advice, bespoke training and coaching for families and carers and also for educational settings and community groups.

ADHD Smart can offer advice on all aspects of ADHD and its associated conditions. These include things such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Autistic Spectrum Conditions, Challenging Behaviours and Sleep Advice.  I also offer mentoring and guidance individually on such things as Building Self Esteem in children and Anger Management, Behaviour Management from a holistic and organic approach.

Using a holistic approach means that ADHD Smart focuses on the whole person and not just the condition. Any support required is worked around your individual needs, preferences, values, and lifestyle. The aim is to give you the skills to overturn the obstacles of ADHD symptoms into opportunities for personal, professional or academic growth.

So if you are the parent, carer or educator of a child with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADD, want to help children and young people to become better self-managers, increase learning outcomes for children and young people in education or need to know more on how to understand the condition also with a view on supporting young people up to 25 years with ADHD then you have come to the right place!

ADHD Smart - About Me As a parent of two children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Oppositional Defiant Disorder I fully understand the difficulties and challenges that arise from caring for children with Special Educational Needs and Challenging Behaviours. I also understand the impact this has on the family, learning outcomes and communities. Also not forgetting there are so many amazing qualities to ADHD that they have too. I am empathic, creative and like to think outside the box when it comes to supporting children with Special Educational needs.

While I was at home bringing up my children I studied ADHD, SEN Law and its associated conditions ODD, ASD, Anxiety Management, Sleep conditions, Level 3 supporting ADHD in school, SEN behaviours, Child Behaviour, Protective Behaviours, Behaviour Management, Non–Violent Resistance, 123 Magic and have accreditations in many aspects of ADHD. I am also experience in working with schools and families with children with additional needs. These are all available if requested.

That led me to running the FACT Northampton Group for families of children with ASD and ADHD, then onto running the county provision for ADHD Family support for Northamptonshire. I then moved on from that to set up ADHD Smart Northamptonshire and the rest is history!

I come with good recommendations from other services, professionals, schools and parents in Northamptonshire and have a proven record of working with vulnerable and hard to reach families. I also have a good reputation with parents and young people I have worked with. I am fully DBS checked and have public liability insurance with all documents available to be on request.
