Speaker:   Stephen Challen
Steve was first diagnosed at the age of 13 with a condition they called "Food Related Hypersensitivity Disease" which was later combined with other condition titles into a new title of ADHD (Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder).  Over the years he has gained confirmation of coexisting conditions such as ODD, Tourette's Syndrome, OCD, and Dyslexia to name a few.  He has been married to his wife, Madeline, for 18 years and has three girls and a son aged from 5 - 17 years of age.  All four children exhibit the same conditions and at various position along the diagnosis / treatment.

Steve and his family use the advice given to control their symptoms to a significantly beneficial level.  It has been proven time and time again to help others with ADHD making families life much, much better.

What do others think of us?
Feedback from ADHD'ers, family members, teachers, LSA and others who attend our meetings are always very positive.  Here is some paraphrasing of comments we've had back from parents who have followed the advice given:

"Steve told us that adjustment would take 2 weeks through to 2 years to see the full benefit; however after 24 hours of introducing the changes my son's teachers asked what we'd done to help him improve his attention and over behaviour.  Two weeks later for the first time ever he asked to go to a restaurant, then invited a friend and despite my reservations in going we had a wonderful time and I even managed to go to the toilet with leaving him alone with his friend and came back to find that restaurant hadn't been trashed!"

This was great feedback.  It is not uncommon for us to hear but we also recognise that many others take longer to work around many of the associated issues they face.  Whether your child is helped quickly or over along period we aim to be here for the long haul.

Here are some feedback messages from our talks:

"We attended the "What is ADHD?" meeting tonight. I would like to say thank you. It was very informative and to hear from someone who has experienced and is living through ADHDas opposed to a consultant who has studied it through a text book was so much more helpful to us and gives us much more insight into our son and his behaviours. It has given us a lot more hope regarding our and his future than we have had so far. Thanks again!"

“Superb presentation, extremely informative.  The presentation was a great mix of background info on the ‘neuro’ science and helpful explanations of behaviour traits.  Made me think about our practice in school.  Thank you very much.  Great to see such quality outreach is available for parents and teachers.”

"A number of our teaching staff attended and we were all very appreciative of your honesty and also highly impressed by what you have achieved.  The impact it has had on the staff was so great, management have recognised that ALL the staff need training to recognise the difficulties and implement strategies into their classroom in order to provide equal educational opportunities to vulnerable learners."

ADHD+ Support

ADHD+ Support is a Voluntary sector charitable organisation raising awareness of ADHD (Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder) and its many coexisting and associated neurological and neurodevelopmental conditions.  Through a range of services we provide personal experiences of ADHD, offering information, signposting, and an unparalleled understanding as to how all aspects of ADHD impact the family unit and beyond. We aim to help close the delta between brain power and personal achievements.   As a charity we also provide access to funded practical support for low income families.

Fundamentally we aim to provide the highest quality support, and see each individual as a person as a whole and also as part of a wider family and community.  We cater for much more than getting by in life but rather our ambition is to help them excel and achieve their full potential in all areas including social, education and working careers.
