Following a successful 3.5 year EU funded project to deliver and evaluate a new Early Intervention Programme for ADHD, the programme is now set to be delivered in Counties Louth and Meath from January 2023 with the support of funding from the Health Service Executive.
The Changing Lives Initiative (CLI) is a community-based programme, which creates a better understanding of ADHD and provides an early intervention programme for families with children experiencing behaviours consistent with ADHD.
The programme is targeted at families with children aged 3-7 who are demonstrating behaviours that may be consistent with ADHD but are often at times too young to receive formal assessment and diagnosis.
Potential families are identified through health, educational and community services, or can self-refer to the programme.
The programme has demonstrated life changing results for families who have participated.
