He joins other Patrons – Rory Bremner, Simon Weston, Alison Moyet and Patricia Kelly – in promoting the work of the Foundation.
In accepting this new role, Professor Carpenter said :
“It is a real honour to join the hardworking team at the ADHD Foundation, promoting the needs of neurodiverse children, whose complex needs are often not recognised and responded too.The Charity’s approach is both refreshing and groundbreaking, and their new insights and innovations, offer much from which others can learn. I , for one, look forward to going on that learning journey , encouraging others to do so, and asking them to support the important, ongoing work in whatever way they can.”
Dr Tony Lloyd , Chief Executive of the ADHD Foundation said:
“We are delighted to welcome such an internationally renowned academic and pioneering mind who is influencing our national conversation about the well-being and education of children, as a Patron of the ADHD Foundation Neurodiversity Charity. Professor Carpenter CBE will collaborate with us as we continue to enable children to thrive in education and achieve their potential”
Why do we need to consider this kind of intervention now and why is it so important to effectively resource such spaces and ensure we are making use of tried and tested / evidence-based strategies and resources?
