Being Me: Drama and ADHD

ADHD Drama Project

Over the last 6 weeks we have been working in partnership with Bridgend Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services running a pilot Drama and Creative Arts project with children in the Maesteg area with ADHD.  Organised through CAMHS at the Princess of Wales Hospital Bridgend, Year 6 pupils from around the Maesteg area were invited to attend the workshops held after school at Plasnewydd Primary School.  We have enjoyed six weeks of drama games and exercises and visual arts activities aimed at raising self-confidence and self-esteem.  The children thoroughly enjoyed coming to the workshops and we are looking forward to developing our partnership with CAMHS to work towards further projects in 2012.
