Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

I featured the 2008 NICE guideline on ADHD in the February 2011 GP version of the Paediatric Pearls newsletter.  All parents of children who are being assessed for possible ADHD should be given information about local parent training/education programmes, not to insinuate that they are poor parents but in recognition of the fact that parenting skills need to be fully optimised to meet the above average parenting needs for this group of children.  Try  for information on lots of free parenting classes provided by Waltham Forest.

Locally, ADHD is dealt with by the Child and Family Consultation Service and all referrals should go to the child psychiatrists and psychologists there please.
