This site is centred on 4 core areas of personal and professional interest namely – ADHD, Neuroscience, Nutrition and Education. The primary aim is that the site will eventually serve as an embryonic hub of knowledge which is both translational and accessible but credible and scientific. It has been written with the following audience in mind:
- Parents/caregivers raising a child with ADHD or similar behavioral/learning difference.
- Adults who either have a diagnosis or suspect they may have symptoms of ADHD.
- Professionals working with young people with ADHD or similar challenging behaviors including but not restricted to: teachers, social workers, psychologists, general practitioners, clinicians, members of youth offending teams or the criminal judicial system.
- Policy makers or philanthropic individuals who are solution-oriented and willing to take on new challenges fearlessly. Such individuals are passionate about equality in education and will importantly share my vision for advocating change in the way we teach, educate and mentor children with ADHD.

There is no longer any doubt that brain function is affected by the food we eat, and as behaviour is directed by the brain, it should be no surprise that a clear link exists between food and behaviour. The Institute for Food, Brain and Behaviour exists to conduct research and, on the basis of that research make positive recommendations to bring about change.
Food and Behaviour Research (FAB Research), established in 2003, is a charitable organisation dedicated both to advancing scientific research into the links between nutrition and human behaviour and to making the findings from such research available to the widest possible audience.
