October is ADHD Awareness Month and on the 10th October ADDISS will be hosting an event in Barnet at the RAF Museum for parents, teachers, healthcare professionals and anyone who has an interest in ADHD.
The theme across Europe is Women and Girls which coincidently is an issue that will be highlighted in the new NICE Guidelines. Women and girls with ADHD tend to be missed or misdiagnosed and this applies to ASC as well.
