ADHD Pacific Resources 

As part of our collaboration project with the ADHD Association, we have printed information resources on ADHD and these are translated into Samoan, Tongan, Cook Islands, Niuean, and NZ Maori and English. If you would like these resources please click on the gallery which will open individual pdf files. These files are downloadable or if you'd like the print resources please email us at 


We are putting a copy of each translation together to give to teachers in schools with high Pacific rolls to hold as a resource.  At the same time we run our workshops to give them more info on ADHD as a condition, plus suggested methods for better managing kids with ADHD in the classroom so these kids are better supported to learn.p


These resources should also help teachers to have a discussion with parents when they suspect a child might have ADHD – and get accurate information in their first language, with recommendations on how to seek further help.
