A THURROCK woman has launched a non-profit organisation to help parents of children with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Founder of Attention for Me, Beverley Boase, 33, of Elgar Gardens, Tilbury, was driven to start the organisation after learning to cope with son, Ethan, seven, who was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of four.

Mum of two Beverley, said: “Having a child with ADHD is very difficult to explain.

“There are days when he can be absolutely fine and there are days when it’s horrendous.

“He can be argumentative, rude and destructive and the kind of child you want to put somewhere else.”

Attention for Me is aimed at giving parents of children with ADHD a break from the day to day stress.

The organisation hope to provide respite for parents by taking the children on weekend and day trips.

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and attention deficit disorder (ADD) refer to a range of problem behaviours associated with poor attention span.

These may include impulsiveness, restlessness and hyperactivity, as well as inattentiveness, and often prevent children from learning and socialising well.

Beverley also hopes that a number of fundraisers planned this year will raise the £5,000 needed to get the organisation registered as a charity.

Tilbury singer songwriter Tall Dark Friend aka Jordan Gray is backing the charity and will be performing at Grays Working Men’s Club in London Road, Grays, on Saturday March 28 Also on the bill is the Chavtown Band, Left for Chance and more.

The show starts at 6pm and finishes at 11.30pm. Entry is £5.
