The Changing Lives Initiative supports families of children aged 3 to 7 years who are at risk of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).
It offers a programme for families consisting of an information and awareness programme, a screening programme, and an intervention in the form of a 20 session Incredible Years parent programme.
In addition to working with families, The Changing Lives Initiative will offer separate information and awareness workshops for those working with young children, in particular teachers and early years practitioners.
Group based parent programmes are recommended as the first course of intervention for young children with behaviour consistent with ADHD by leading international bodies such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE UK) and the Global ADHD Working Group.
The new Initiative will be delivered across County Louth, Colin/West Belfast, and the Argyll & Bute region of Scotland.
The project is supported by the European Union’s INTERREG VA Programme,
managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
