Healthcare Improvement Scotland (HIS) and the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE – England) recommend that parents and carers of children diagnosed with ADHD should be offered parent training programmes as a first line treatment for the disorder.
As a programme which has already been evaluated and shown to be a very effective resource for parents and carers, Parents INC is fast becoming a highly respected parent training programme which is now being rolled out across Scotland.
It is our aim to help make Parents INC the number one ADHD Parent Training Programme, not just in Scotland but across the whole of the United Kingdom.
