What is ADHD


Information for Parents



The ADHD Pathway is made up of a team of experienced professionals from a range of disciplines, and sits within the Pupil Support Service

Pupil Support Service

We accept referrals from the child or young person’s school. Please be aware we do not accept referrals for children under the age of six.

In the first instance, schools should complete the PSS referral form and tick the ADHD pathway. Further documentation will be sent out for both schools and parents to complete. Schools should include reports from other professionals, which may support a child or young person’s referral. A copy of the QB check should also be included if this available to school. Once all of the documentation has been received by PSS, the ADHD Triage Panel then triages the referral and a decision made as to whether the child or young person is accepted onto the pathway. Once accepted all relevant information is passed to HYM.
