ADD-NI Childrens Charity is Northern Irelands only regional support network providing intervention services to those affected by Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or AD/HD. ADD-NI was established in 1997 (previously NI-ADD) to support and empower children, young people and families affected by AD/HD. We are the only organisation in Northern Ireland to provide specialist therapeutic services for the condition of AD/HD and co-morbidities. Our wide range of services include ADDNIs Parenting Programme, age appropriate therapeutic group work, art therapy, individual counselling, sibling programmes and training. Steps to Success supports young people with ADHD who are struggling with education and are isolated. Activities include education programmes, peer support programmes, art therapy, sibling support, counselling and a telephone support service for parents. Working in approximately 40 schools across Northern Ireland, pupils are helping to train teachers to provide psycho-education programmes for young people with ADHD. They are also running a youth committee, providing peer support, producing promotional materials and organising celebration events.
