Parent & Carer Training

ADD-vance provides a range of training courses and workshops for parent carers, including our popular 6-week courses and a variety of more focused workshops on different topics.

All our training is provided by two specialist and fully qualified trainers.  Trainers are also ‘experts by experience’; we all have children with ADHD and/or Autism and many of us have a diagnosis ourselves! 

We do our best to include a range of days and times to allow as many people to access our training as possible.

Our usual 6-week courses and workshops are currently running online, via Zoom, so you can attend from the comfort of your own home! For full details of current courses and workshops and to book your FREE tickets, please see eventbrite.
