The group is led by Nora Young, a director of Birmingham Resilience Education and Wellbeing Services CIC (BREWS)
Nora has ADHD herself and has raised autistic ADHD children. She was a primary school teacher for over 25 years and over the last few years has worked with ADHD young people from 6 -19. She set up BREWS to try to provide the support that she wishes she had been able to get when she was on her parenting journey.
Much of the traditional parenting advice does not work with neurodivergent children. This can lead us to feeling like bad parents. While we are struggling to support our children, who is supporting us?
In theses sessions we look at how to create a sensory profile, how to solve problems collaboratively and how to advocate for our children. We do not suggest sticker charts, time outs and other tactics that try to alter children’s behaviour through rewards and punishments. We try to find out the underlying unsolved problem that is causing unwanted behaviours.
Please join us !
We are passionate about supporting neurodivergent children and young people and their families.
We are funded and supported by Birmingham Forward Carers to offer this course free to parents and carers across Birmingham.
