Welcome to ADHD - ASC - Dyslexia Family Resources Belgium
Our mission is to provide a network of support, evidence-based information and resources for the English-speaking families affected by Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) and related conditions in Belgium, as well as for their teachers and other professionals who work with them. By doing this, we hope that we can spread awareness about AD'HD and the related conditions that often coexist with it, such as Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dyspraxia, Asperger's Syndrome (AS), etc. so that the children and adolescents who suffer from this chronic condition will have the opportunity to achieve to their full potential at school and live balanced and productive lives as adults.
We also hope that our efforts will do much to reduce the stigma surrounding AD/HD that still exists today - mainly because of media misinformation - , which is something that has a significant effect on the number of children and adolescents who remain undiagnosed and untreated.
We hope that you will take the time to look carefully at the information on this website and let others know where they can find authentic evidence-based information and resources about this misunderstood and much maligned disorder, which is unfortunately very real and can ruin lives when no effort is made to detect and treat it.

Homework and Behavioural Issues in Children & Adolescents with ADHD, Autism Spectrum Conditions and Learning Difficulties
Dr. Anca Paunica, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist who first trained in France as an adult pychchiatrist (2004) before receiving Board certification in the US from the American Board of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry in 2009. She strives "...towards integrated Mindful education and integrated mindful psychiatry"
IBC Fellowship Hall, Lange Eikstraat 76-78, 1970 Wezembeek-Oppem
In this workshop, Dr. Paunica will address the common behavioural and homework issues affecting families and schools while giving useful tips to participants and encouraging them to develop a positive mindset in dealing with these issues. She draws from her experience as a Child & Adolescent psychiatrist who sees her role as an interface between the patient (child/adolescent), the family, service users, society and political decision-makers. She has developed a particular interest in Mindfulness-Based stress reduction techniques and Mindfulness-Based cognitive therapy and sees these as especially beneficial for parents and teachers. She says: "This will be an opportunity to mindfully reflect together on the values that we want to transmit to our children and teens. Discipline is about what we want to teach them within a loving and caring relationship. Each crisis is an opportunity to learn for both of us."
