ADHD drawing by Samuel Moore aged 9. This shows the letters ADHD, with the A and the H as figures and the Ds brightly coloured - one in rainbow stripes and the other in a red, white, blue and pink crazy paving-style design.

We have a lovely activity book for young patients - this can be downloaded by clicking on the image below.

The activity book was developed by Dr Lauren Powell, Lecturer in Psychology and Education at the University of Sheffield, and Dr Jack Parker, a Senior Lecturer at The University of Derby, Dr Gemma Wheeler, a Design Researcher at Sheffield Hallam University and Project Manager at National Institute for Health and Care Research Children and Young People MedTech Co-operative (NIHR CYP MedTech) and Chris Redford, a Graphic Designer also at Sheffield Hallam University.

The activity book is aimed at children aged 7-11 years to help them understand and manage their ADHD more effectively, although parents of younger children may like to use some of the things within this as it includes drawing and colouring activities.
