ADHD Solutions is an independent initiative set up to support children young people and adults who have ADHD, their families, and the professionals who are working with them. For some this will be empowering parents to restore balance in their home by implementing our behaviour management programme. For others it may be that we work with a child's school to prevent exclusion and enable them to reach their full potential.
We are well known for our specialist holistic approach to adult and family programmes and support. Our services support individuals diagnosed or suspected of living with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other coexisting neurodiverse traits. We are the go-to provider of bespoke training and support for schools, health and other professionals and businesses that support or work alongside our clients. We ensure all that come to us can thrive, built their resilience and feel able to lead fulfilling lives. We exist due to the dedication and determination of Christine Jarvis, a State Registered Nurse, highly respected Specialist ADHD Family Coach and mother of a son with ADHD who established ADHD Solutions and dedicated her working life to lobbying for resources and services to support local children, young people and their families.
ADHD is a complex neurobiological condition. Find out more about ADHD and ADHD in childhood here.

Meet The Team
Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
When I first discovered ADHD Solutions I was immediately drawn to the passion and dedication of the team who work here and to the excellent work they do supporting so many different and varied people. I believe I have found the perfect opportunity to put my extensive leadership and management skills to use in a way which can genuinely do some good. Our organisation is always striving to do the very best by all our stakeholders and I lead from the front on that score. When I am out of work then my favourite thing is to spend as much time as possible outdoors as I find that the perfect way to recharge, whether that be camping, walking, or just enjoying some peace and tranquillity.

I am driven towards supporting others to achieve their aspirations and potential. Joining ADHD solutions in 2020 was a perfect opportunity for me, since joining I have been excited and proud to see the development of the organisation and team. Having the role of Business Development Director means I develop networks, build relationships and make sure that funders know we exist and that the fantastic work we do has the most amazing impact on families, adults and professionals. Creativity excites me – music, art, fashion, writing and everything that makes you smile.

There is nothing I like more than a challenge and the opportunity to help people's lives.
