Each month ADD-vance trained coaches run drop-in Support Group meetings aimed at the parents and carers of children and young people affected by ADHD and/ or Autism or a similar condition. Support Groups are currently run in St Albans and Hertford and are very informal. We meet for a cup of tea/ coffee and to give mutual support. We share our experiences so that we can all learn from each other and make things better for our children and our families. Sit, listen or speak – it’s up to you. Our specialist coaches, who are also parents of children and young adults with Autism/ADHD, will be on hand to make the sessions go smoothly and are available for you to ask questions privately if you wish. We have a lending library and you can borrow books for a returnable deposit of £10 (cash or cheque) and leaflets and other information for you to take home.
