Jannine Harris MA PGCE is a teacher, trainer, parent, academic and consultant specialising in ADHD. She was diagnosed with ADHD herself four years ago following the diagnosis of two of her three children.
Jannine is brutely honest and open in her delivery of the theory and practice of ADHD. She uses her own life and professional experiences to talk you through what works and what doesn't - and she can tell you why you don't always get the outcomes you were expecting. You can ask her questions along the way, and she'll answer in a raw, real and respectful way. Jannine will talk about why things go wrong and how they can be turned around. She isn't idealistic and doesn't make any false promises. ADHD is hard to live with! Jannine is an example what thriving with ADHD can look like. Her 25 year old daughter, who has Asperger's and ADHD, is her side kick. The two of them will leave you in no doubt of what is possible and how you might achieve this for yourself, your child, spouse, or the people you support.
