ADHD training offered to parents22nd September 2010
The NHS in Scotland looks set to offer parents of children who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) special parenting classes.
It has issued recent guidelines for treating the condition which includes a recommendation that parents receive "behavioural training". The training has been recommended by the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN), an organisation set up to examine the evidence for treatments and decide which should be provided by the NHS. About 5% of school age children in the UK are thought to have ADHD.
