WEBSITES

The internet can provide a wealth of knowledge regarding different conditions, symptoms and treatments etc. However, it is important to remember that not everything you read on the internet is correct.

SUPPORT GROUPS

Support groups are a useful way to meet like minded people and to help people feel less isolated. Members may be made up of those suffering with a condition or parents and family members impacted by a condition. They are a useful resource enabling members to share coping strategies, make new friends and share information in a

non judgemental environment. Members may be able to offer tips on getting a diagnosis and how to access various helpful services.

COACHES

Recruiting a coach can be a very useful resource. Coaches aim to encourage the individual to focus on understanding their own needs. A coach provides recommendations, feedback, and concrete techniques such as reminders, questions, and calendar monitoring to help the individual organise themselves.

A coach can help with issues such as managing time, maintaining focus, prioritising and learning to set realistic goals. Professional coaches are trained to provide their clients with structures, tools and strategies that will help them better manage the challenges they have living with their conditions.

COUNSELLORS

Counselling is another valuable resource enabling the individual or the entire family unit, to speak freely and comfortably with a qualified counselor, whose aim is to help them come to terms with a diagnosis.

Having a child or parent in the family who suffers with a condition such as ADHD can affect the whole family as much as the suffering individual. It is important to include the impact on all family members when practicing effective management. Diagnosis of a condition within the family unit can lead to several emotions including guilt, anger, and resentment.

Siblings can often face several challenges in their family role. They may find they get less attention and may be more strictly punished when they do something wrong, but may also receive less

praise for their successes if taken for granted. They may be required to take on more responsibility at a younger age in helping to take care of their sibling. Siblings may find they feel jealous or resentful towards their suffering brother or sister.  A useful website is www.sibs.org.uk

Parents of a child suffering from a condition such as ADHD, may find themselves physically exhausted due to meeting the child’s demands. Parents can end up feeling frustrated and angry as a result of the child’s behaviour and this in turn can lead to guilt for allowing themselves to feel this way.

The role of counsellor is to work with the individual and the family as a whole to combat these emotions and assist them in moving forward.

The following website has some helpful tips for parents living with ADHD. However, the advice given can easily be translated to parents living with other difficult conditions.
