Event description

Description

We recommend you attend our 1 day course 'Understanding and Supporting Individuals with Attention Difficulties' before attending this course.

This course is designed to give parents and professionals with a basic understanding of ADHD and ADD time to consider how to support individuals with these conditions long term. Both ADHD and ADD effect executive functioning, something that is a developmental process that can be supported through certain interactions and activities. Environmental adjustments, attitude and in some cases medication are all approaches that can be supportive and at times essential for these individuals. However, supporting someone to recognise their strengths and weaknesses, how to build on weaknesses and put things in place to help them be successful in relationships is vital to giving them the chance to thrive and contribute to society in ways that only those with these unique and truly valuable traits can.

Over the 2 days we will cover:

* Re-visiting an understanding of ADHD & ADD as an executive functioning disorder.

* Separating ADHD & ADD from other conditions or behavioural factors.

* Approaches to Challenging Behaviour that may be associate with these conditions.

* Supportive approaches to Executive Functioning deficits

* Supporting Executive Functioning through activity and interaction

* Planning for positive experiences and utilising skills to find a future

As with all BIS-net courses there will be time for pratcie of skills and techniques, as well as time for group discussion and peer support from others going through simialr exeperinces and challneges to yourself.
