ADHD Training for Schools, Professionals and Parents/Carers

Here's a bit about me and what I offer.

My name is Claire Ryan and I've worked for the NHS in speech and language therapy for 16 years, a role which I thoroughly enjoy. The diverse nature of my job has enabled me to develop effective methods of supporting:

  • school staff from a wide range of settings
  • parents/carers
  • children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.

I am a parent to a young person with SEND and I have a diagnosis of ADHD and the combination of work and lived experience brings a unique insight to my training.

I believe in reflecting on what we 'know' about SEND and am certain that success is achieved through enabling adults, children and young people to develop a better understanding of individual needs and skills, which in turn leads to more effective support and improved outcomes.
