‘ADHD is one of the most common childhood conditions that can continue through adolescence and into adulthood. ADHD is thought to affect between 3-9% of school age children and young people in the UK (NICE, 2013).

Likewise, around 700,000 people in the UK are on the autism spectrum. Together with their families they make up around 2.8 million people whose lives are touched by autism in the UK alone (National Autism Society, 2016).

The exact cause of both autism and ADHD is poorly understood, and there is currently no known cure although much can be done to support people with these conditions.’

You can register online until 17 July 2016 at:
