Today's 'Friday Focus' is on exams. It's a stressful time for most students as they sit their GCSE's, A-levels and University exams, but please try to remember exams are not the-be-all-and-end-all. Remember, there is always another path, another opportunity, and it's not necessarily worse than your original plan, sometimes it's better! Aside from academic success there are so many things that are important, your work ethic, ambition, a passion for what you want to do, self-belief, a positive attitude and most important of all patience. If things don't go to plan don't give up, give it time, you'll find a way. Remember, a grade on a piece of paper will not decide your future!If you'd like some tips to get you through YoungMinds have some great tips for coping with exam stress in the article link below.www.youngminds.org.uk/young-person/coping-with-life/exam-stress/Good luck from everyone at ADD-vance ☘️ ...

A reminder that this evening is the second Neurodiversity Network coffee session at the Liberty Tearooms in Hemel. Poster with details attached, please feel free to share the info with anyone who you think might be interested.Bring a friend or go alone and meet other Neurodivergent people, all very welcome! Any questions or further information, please email laura.bell@add-vance.orgFor today's 'Follow Friday' we'd like to feature a new Neurodivergent social group in Hemel Hempstead, which will take place on the third Thursday of each month. There will be tea/coffee available to all and would suggest a small donation to Liberty Tea Rooms who are kindly allowing us the exclusive use of their cafe. Liberty Tea Rooms is in Hemel town centre with nearby parking at the water gardens carpark. It is a fabulous cafe, run by a lovely welcoming couple Kerry-Anne and Owen, and is the perfect venue for our group. This group is for people who want to network with other neurodivergent people discussing work, life and all things neurodiversity related and we would particularly welcome people late-diagnosed/currently self-diagnosed who are starting to learn about neurodiversity at a later stage of life and want to connect to others who have had a similar experience. We will likely have activities such as board games and arts and crafts at some of our sessions and are certainly open to ideas from you, the community, about what you would like from the drop-in sessions.Please feel free to share the attached poster with anyone you think might be interested in coming along on Thursday 21st April or in the future.

Pressure to do well in exams can be overwhelming and affect your mental health. Here's our advice if it's all getting a bit too much. https://www.youngminds.org.uk/young-person/coping-with-life/exam-stress/

There is a positive shift when it comes to #neurodiversityatwork.

We explore the changing nature of the workplace and how some organizations are leading the charge on neuro-inclusivity with insight from @tonylloyd50, CEO of The @ADHDFoundation:

Under new #SENDReview proposals, parents will be given a ‘tailored’ list of schools by their local authority, from which they can choose a place for their child.

Do you think that will help autistic children and young people?

The #SENDReview proposals include a new banding and funding system matched to levels of need. But a ‘one size fits all’ approach will not work for autistic young people.

In our latest blog, Susannah explains how she ‘fell between two worlds’ at school.
