About this event

I’m Ailín Kennedy, an ADHD coach and advocate from Cork!

I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 32 after a lifetime of wondering why I felt so different, and why I struggled so much. It’s been an incredible opportunity to discover this about myself, and I have managed to turn it into a career by becoming an ADHD coach. I help ADHD and Neurodivergent people understand how their own neurodiversity shows up, and how to access their unique strengths.

This course is specifically for teenagers living with ADHD, finding opportunities to understand and work with their ADHD rather than against it, and a chance to work towards self-acceptance. It spans six weeks (1.5 hours per session) and covers the following topics:

Week 1: Understanding ADHD

Week 2: Executive Dysfunction & Organisation

Week 3: Self-care

Week 4: Friendships & Relationships

Week 5: Motivation

Week 6: Advocacy

This programme is free to participants with thanks to funding from The RTE Toy Show Appeal, Community Foundation for Ireland.
