The Trouble with Dragons app tells the story of a young boy called Olly and his mischievous dragon, Red.

The app has been developed for use by parents, carers and families of children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), those involved in their education and healthcare professionals managing children with the condition.

For ages 6+, this app aims to help children (and adults too) understand a little more about ADHD and how to manage it. The Trouble with Dragons originated as a printed, award-winning storybook and its development included input from professionals in the education sector and children themselves. The story is now available as an interactive app, enhanced with short games and additional functionality to further its use with children with ADHD.

This app is not designed to replace the advice of your healthcare professional. You are advised to consult your child’s healthcare professional for further information on ADHD.

This app has been initiated and funded by ©Shire 2016.

Terrific book and app

A beautifully written story, with interactive games and participation features for primary school age children. A gentle way to discuss ADHD symptoms and living with your 'dragon'.
