Sarah is an ex-professional Actor with many years experience of speaking publicly.

  • ADHD in the Criminal Justice System. The scandal of the tens of thousands of young offenders and offenders trapped in the prison system because nobody is testing them for ADHD
  • ADHD Liberty – The charity Sarah has set up to help ADHD people, particularly undiagnosed, running into trouble with the law. How she has gathered a team of eminent neuro consultants, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, members of the police force and prison service to fight for change in the Criminal Justice System.
  • Teachers – The scandal that means currently teacher training only usually involves maximum half a day SEN training in three years. And we wonder why teachers are not spotting ADHD, Autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia and other comorbidities in their classrooms
  • Counsellors – Why in five years counselling training the words ADHD were not mentioned once. Yet the condition brings with it anxiety and depression so people with ADHD are more likely to end up in therapy than anybody else. Yet counsellors receive zero training in it.
  • How damaging professionals who don’t believe in ADHD are. How misdiagnosis is rife. How the prison service still handout diagnosis of BPD/EUPD and doctors and psychiatrists – ASD and Bipolar because they haven’t been trained to spot Adult ADHD.
