ADHD is a group of behavioural symptoms that include attentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness. It is a neurological condition that can affect every aspect of a person's daily life. Staff have received training on ADHD. We look at the whole child and how they manage routines and organise their belongings as masking can take place. Additional information and support can be found by clicking on the Stockport Local Offer link ADHD training
As a school we are able to refer a child for assessment, after trialling adaptations within class, at home, and over a period of time. A referral can be made from the age of 6.5 years if there is sufficent evidence in more than one setting. Please speak with your child's class teacher and the SENDCo if you require further advice.
Staff at Warren Wood have received training on how to support children who display difficulties with their concentration and focus.
If your child has a diagnosis of ADHD, SPACE is a support group which shares information, can signpost you to service, share experiences and raise awareness of ADHD and associated conditions.
