Jo Newing
I am a Registered General and Mental Health Nurse with a Diploma in Child and Adolescent Mental Health. I have over 15 years experience of working with Children and Young People.

My specific area of expertise is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children. ADHD is a Neurodevelopmental condition which affects both children, adolescents and adults.

My main role is to carry out an in depth assessment to determine the difficulties you and your child are experiencing and to help plan a way forward. The assessment is undertaken by myself, during which time I will discuss any questions and concerns you may have, carry out one to one assessment sessions as well as a school visit if appropriate. The assessment will then be recorded in a comprehensive report.
