It’s common to have a child who seems to have endless energy yet amazingly requires very little sleep. It can be exhausting for you. Our Health Visitor Mandy, Nurses or GP’s are happy to discuss this further with you. A small number of children do have ADHD, Autism or Aspergers (which is a type of Autism).
The Hyperactive Children's Support Group is a registered charity which has been successfully helping Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and hyperactive children and their families for over 35 years. Our specialism is advocating a dietary approach to the problem of hyperactivity.
