Young People

Having ADHD can be a real challenge – especially during your school years. Sometimes learning how to manage your ADHD traits can be tricky.

We run children’s and young people’s skill building training to help with this. Sometimes even developing our learning skills is not enough, so sometimes young people need to manage emotions and feelings too, further down this page is a list of guides that may be helpful.

Lenny and Lily in Lockdown and Lenny and Lily Return to School will help children make sense of their experiences during the coronavirus pandemic, communicate their feelings and prepare for more change as they go back to the classroom. As the stories are told in pictures alone, it is not necessary for children to be able to read words to enjoy them. This means they are appropriate for pupils in both mainstream and special education settings.

Both stories are structured around the 5 Losses and 5 Levers of the Recovery Curriculum – www.recoverycurriculum.org

Supporting text at the end of each story gives teaching staff and parents guidance on how to use the stories with children.

Both stories are available to download for free in time for the start of the new term from: www.booksbeyondwords.co.uk/lenny-and-lily-childrens-stories.
