Caring for a child with ADHD can be difficult at times and can place a strain on parents and other family members.
Adults with ADHD also have a lot of unanswered questions and may battle to cope with managing day-to-day responsibilities.
For this reason, the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Support Group of Southern Africa (ADHASA) hosts an annual conference for parents of children with ADHD and adults with ADHD.
This year's conference will take place in Sandton on the 28th and 29th of May 2016 and will include talks on healthy lunchboxes, managing school relationships, careers opportunity and 10 steps before Ritalin.
ADHASA (Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Support Group of Southern Africa) is a registered non-profit organisation and has been assisting people for over 20 years, living with and/or affected by ADHD. As a non-profit support group, ADHASA relies heavily on the funds raised by our conference to cover operating expenses so that we can continue providing support to thousands of families affected by ADHD.
The support group is focused on ADHD and diet, with possible improvements in mood, concentration and behaviour.
ADHASA also offers information, advice, support and guidance as well as referrals to other professionals to further assist sufferers.
