Event description

Description

Understanding Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Learning Outcomes:

On completing the course participants will:

  • Be able to describe the core characteristics of ADHD.

  • Be able to identify a number of alternative reasons why a child might be inattentive or hyperactive.

  • Be able to describe the role of medication in helping a child who has ADHD.

  • Be aware of a range of strategies and interventions to support children and young people with a diagnosis of ADHD.

  • Have reflected on their practice and considered how to apply this learning in their settings.

Ideal for:

This course is particularly relevant for behavioural and learning support staff in schools, SENCO’s, teaching staff, school nurses and cluster support staff. As well as practitioners in the voluntary sector working to support children and families.

Overview:

“ADHD” and “Ritalin” have entered the everyday language of many parents and people who work with children. However, there is still a lot of confusion about what ADHD actually means, how it is decided that a child has ADHD and how Ritalin and other interventions make a difference. The aim of the course is to increase understanding of what ADHD is and how we can help children and families for whom ADHD is a problem.
