Parents to be offered ADHD training

Parents of children in Scotland who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) could soon be offered special parenting classes.

The NHS in Scotland has issued recent guidelines for treating the condition which includes a recommendation that parents receive "behavioural training".

Doctors have said the guidance should not be viewed as an attempt to blame parents for their child's behaviour.
