DavePugheParryWelcome to my new home on the interweb.

I am Dave Pughe-Parry.

More than twenty years ago I founded and launched Living ADDventure® to serve the needs of people who live with and alongside ADHD.

Early in 2023 my wife asked me whether I wanted to be remembered as the founder of Living ADDventure®, or as Dave Pughe-Parry? The answer required quite a bit of thought, surprisingly!

Like my wife Pat, Living ADDventure® has been an integral part of my life for some 23 years. In that time the main website spawned 5 specialist ADHD sites for women, teenagers, teachers, parents, and a dedicated training site.

We trained more than 7 000 teachers around South Africa - a small drop in a vast ocean. We spoke at schools in every province in South Africa, we trained a few ADHD coaches, and a few Support Group Leaders, and worked with over 1 000 families.

We have also completed a good number of training sessions for specialist doctors and other medical professionals.

Obviously I want to be remembered as the man who wrote the content, not the company. That decision saw the conception of this website, which will come into its own in February 2024, with a content foundation of the best from Living ADDventure®.
