Young People INC (YPINC): An ADHD course for parents / carers of secondary age children (12-17 years) with a diagnosis of ADHD

What is it?

Young People INC (YPINC) is a 7-week online course (1hr per week) or  5 week face to face course (2 hours per week) for parents / carers of teenagers with ADHD. On this course you will learn about ADHD; what it is and how it affects a young person’s thoughts, feelings and behaviour. You will learn how to support them to succeed and strategies to help you manage difficult behaviours that can happen.

Each week we discuss ideas and strategies and you will be asked to practice these at home between group sessions. This is important to help you to get the most benefit from the programme.

This course is for parents and carers and not for children and young people. 

What does each session involve?

  • YPINC is not group therapy, it is a class delivered online or face to face.  For the online course, your camera and microphone will be switched off during the sessions. There is a chat feature which you will be invited to use to post questions / comments.

  • NHS professionals give you information about ADHD and teach recommended strategies.

  • You will receive handouts for each session

  • You can invite a friend or family member to join the session, particularly if they help you care for your child

How will this help me?

  • This course will help you keep a good relationship with your teenager, even when things are tricky.

  • Feel more confident managing difficult ADHD behaviours

  • Understand more about ADHD and how it affects your teenager
