PARENTS

This page provides a variety of free, downloadable documents  for parents containing information about education, work and living with APD. Some are primarily for children but others are suitable for all ages. Children with APD will grow into adults with APD so you may also want to look at the documents on the Adults page. Links to my support groups are on the Online Support page.

All the information here, and all the articles etc. can be printed and shared free of charge, but please respect and retain the copyright on all documents, whoever the author might be. More will be added over time - please visit again.

Please share this information, this website,and links to support groups- and spread awareness of APD in the UK and elsewhere.

PLEASE NOTE: The documents on this website are in black ink on white paper. For those with dyslexia or visual processing difficulties, it is advised to print the documents on recycled paper, to minimise glare.
