The Outcomes Star for children and young people managing ADHD
Copyright: Triangle Consulting Social Enterprise Limited
The Attention Star has been developed for use with children and young people, aged between 5 and 18, who have been diagnosed with ADHD. The ADHD Star has also been developed specifically for use with adults diagnosed with ADHD.
The Attention Star was developed by Triangle with Norfolk Community Health and Care Trust, and in particular consultant clinical psychologist Richard Gilham and Dr Anastasia Bem.
The Attention Star covers eight areas essential to helping children and young people manage their ADHD:
- Education and learning
- Routine at home
- Friends and social life
- Physical health
- How you feel
- How you behave
- Attention and organisation
The Attention Star is based on a five-stage Journey of Change:
- Getting help
- Trying things out
- Finding what works
- Managing well
Full resources are available for organisations with a Star Licence and training for all workers and managers using the Star.
