Get functional solutions for ADHD at this year's ADHASA conference

ADHASA is hosting their annual conference for parents of children with ADHD and Adults with ADHD on 28 and 29 May 2016.

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.
