Connecting parent's & carer's with support, resources and information for raising children with ADHD.
There is so much information online it can often be very overwhelming. To narrow it down to just a few, here are some links to accredited information that might be helpful to you.
PERTH KIDS HUB
Perth Kids Hub is an online directory and is not staffed by medical professionals (just a Perth Mum trying to help families find the support they need). This resource is continuously updated to help parents connect with health care professionals by providing contact details and services available in and around the Perth metro areas.
Perth Kids Hub is not a paediatric practice, we cannot accept referrals and cannot provide medical advice.
Your GP, Child Health Nurse or Emergency Department should always be your first point of call for help.
